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 searched through All Climbing’s video network and found this clip from a movie about John Bachar. In July 1981 a note appeared in Yosemite Valley – “$10,000 reward for anyone who can follow me for one full day. – John Bachar”
For a final gasp of summer, here’s a new deep water solo video (via UKclimbing.com) of Rob Lamey on the first ascent of The Heel Hook Look on the Little Orme, North Wales

ClimbingNarc reports that Dead Point Magazine released its 4th issue and added a new feature to their site called DPM HDTV. Currently there’s only two videos on the site, but they’re high quality and quite good. Hopefully Dead Point will continue to post more of these high quality videos on a regular basis.
I’ve been struggling with some climbing injuries recently and finally decided to visit a sports medicine doctor highly recommended by a friend. My issues were a recurring finger injury at the base of my right ring finger and pain in my elbows and thumbs. He rather quickly diagnosed the elbows/thumbs as flexor tendinitis and set […]
FISH Products has a great intro to climbing big walls. Filled with attitude, this guide go through the basics from equipment to hooking to sneaky tricks of the trade.
Stewart Green, author of Rock Climbing Colorado and other guides, has written a new climbing guide to Europe called Rock Climbing Europe. “Rock Climbing Europe” is an oversized, sturdily bound paperback guide that Green finished after 15 trips to Europe for research, climbing and interviews with climbers. “When I started going to Europe in the […]
Rick from Cremnomaniac has complied a nice list of trad climbing techniques, tricks, and tips. Trad climbing has lost some of its appeal, or is a smaller blip on the radar. I still know plenty of folks that prefer trad, but there was a day when there was only trad. Trad climbing may be analogous […]
The Governor Stable Bouldering Competition, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Alliance of Climbers (PAC), will be held this year on March 19, 2005. This annual competition hosts over 200 climbers and registration for the comp includes a one year PAC membership.
Late in the fall last year, there were some excellent bouldering conditions at the New River Gorge. The next couple of posts highlight some of these problems. The following pics are of Shampoo (V5) at Burnwood.
Friday night I attended the world premier of Pure in Boulder. After watching the trailer and speaking with the filmmaker, Chuck Fryberger, I was highly anticipating Pure. I still had some apprehension though. As more climbing films are released, I’m starting to get the feeling climbers are becoming jaded. How many more ways are there […]
While the “top X” of anything can be heartily debated, take a look at this clip from The Top 20 Classic Boulder Problems of North America released last year by Flashed Climbing and Rock & Ice. Over 500 top climbers were asked to name the most classic boulder problems in North America. This is a […]
