A new feature I’m adding to the All Climbing blog is a daily (or almost daily) climbing links feature. Using del.icio.us, the links I come across related to climbing will be automatically posted to my blog each day. I previously tried this, but by using del.icio.us it will much easier. So, this feature will be […]

I was pointed to a climbing podcast site called Pod Climber (via Wired Nut). Pod Climber looks like an interesting resource, but I really wish I understood the attraction of podcasts. I’ve written about podcasts on my other blog and still, months later, I have no desire to use them. It probably stems from the […]

Shady Goings On has started a nice series of posts entitled Rock Climbing A to Z with the first on N for nuts.
I just saw that All Climbing was posted as the “blog of the day”. Any publicity, no matter how small or large is welcome. Thanks!

I’ve read and studied that book cover to cover numerous times and now the experts from The Mountaineers have put out some guidelines for wilderness survival. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer has a useful article on the ten […]
I’ve seen some recent email traffic as well as some posts (rexblog, fishbowlNY) regarding the latest issue of Outside magazine. An article entitled “Babes on Belay” and the accompanying picture shoot sure have some people up in arms. I haven’t read the article yet, nor was I planning to, but it has now been adding […]
