There have now been three issues of the weekly Climbing Digest email newsletter, so I thought it was time to talk about the project in a little bit more in detail. As I mentioned in my site re-boot post, one of the projects I’ve wanted to launch for a while (quite literally years, as I […]
From Black Diamond: It all started in the gym for BD Athlete Carlo Traversi. Now, 15 years later, he’s come full circle, tracing his roots back to where it began, only this time, as the owner of Sacramento’s new premier bouldering gym. But Carlo’s motivation is not only to provide quality plastic pulling, but also […]

I started All Climbing back in January 2005 — 14 years now! There have been many ups and downs, including pretty much a full stop back in 2010 when I was in the middle of running a startup. Over the intervening years, while I didn’t post to the site, I continued to curate links on […]

I finally got around to watching last week’s Louder Than Eleven and ClimbingNarc‘s Talkshow #1 The Show With No Name. Brian interviewed professional climbers Paul Robinson and Alex Johnson on a variety of topics including viewer submitted questions. I found the training discussion (first 20 minutes) particularly interesting. Looking forward to the next one!
On the theme of climbing access, please take some time to view the documentary Heart of Stone, a film from Andrew Kornylak and Josh Fowler. This is a fantastic, must-watch climbing video.

Charles Danforth has a witty poem entitled “Ode to a Pink Tricam” on his Pink Tri-Cam Fan Page: Whether you love it or hate it, everyone seems to have some strong opinion of our little pink friends. That’s right, the size 0.5 Tri-cam from Camp! Personally, I love the little buggers. No climb is complete […]

Quoting the zero friction site: 0friction.com is a site by climbers for climbers for a world of digital cameras and climbing photography. It is a place where a climbing fotog can upload his/her favorite pictures through a very simple process so that […]
