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 […]
Jimmy Webb: Nine Days at the New River Bounty from Kevin Takashi Smith on Vimeo. From the New River Alliance of Climbers (NRAC): In November of 2017, Jimmy Webb traveled to West Virginia to compete in the New River Bounty, a unique bouldering competition organized by the New River Alliance of Climbers (NRAC). Climbers were […]
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 […]
Most climbers absolutely love watching climbing videos on the web and climbing bloggers try to oblige by curating and promoting the best ones we find. In order to make it even easier to find and watch great climbing videos, All Climbing has partnered with Force5 to create a video channel network on our site. You […]

After my trip to Boone earlier this year, I’ve been itching to get back down there this Fall. Here’s an video posted on rockclimbing.com that shows a sampling of bouldering in North Carolina.
Back in February, I reviewed the climbing movie Pure. At that film’s premier in Boulder, the audience had the first glimpse of the upcoming film, Rocky Mountain Highball. At the time, I remember being very excited for the premier on April 27. I’m not 100% positive, but this latest trailer seems to be much longer […]
ESPN The Magazine profiles ice climber Will Gadd. Gadd stands at the base of the 40-foot-high frozen waterfall and looks up. He kicks footholds with his crampons and swings his axes overhead, driving the points deep into the ice. He pulls with his arms and pushes with his legs, then kicks his feet and swings […]
Wired Nut has a review of a new stick clip tool, the RockTools Superclip. Looks like it may be a better alternative than the Trango Squid.
Climbing Magazine has all their tech tips nicely listed on their site now.
I heard some rumors about the ice climbing at the New River Gorge, but hadn’t had a chance to actually get up there this winter. With the arrival of March and the warmer weather, it looks like I’ll have to wait until next season to get some ice climbing in locally. It’s really not that […]
B3bouldering.com has two great posts up on bouldering in Lincoln Woods, Rhode Island and Pawtuckaway, New Hampshire. I’ve climbed several times at Rumney a few years back, but never had the chance to go bouldering at Pawtuckaway. From the pics, it looks like I need to get back up there sometime. For more bouldering info […]
Neptune Mountaineering in Boulder hosted a slideshow last night presented by Bob Horan, author of the new and highly controversial guidebook Bouldering Colorado. Honestly, I was hoping some of the book’s most vocal detractors would show up for an open debate (hopefully more entertaining than the VP debate happening simultaneously), but there was a relatively […]
Outdoornewswire reports that Chris Sharma completed a first ascent of Witness the Fitness, an extremely difficult boulder line in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas. Sharma described the line as “…a forty foot (12m) roof with a perfect jug at the beginning and a perfect topout, and a line of small edges and mushroom-shaped knobs connecting […]
