Too many blog posts to handle? If you missed out on a popular post on All Climbing from last month, here’s a quick digest of the top posts that you may want to check out:
- Looking for Climbers on Twitter?
Posted on Tuesday, December 9th, 2008 in FeaturedI was recently trying to compile a list of climbers with accounts on Twitter, but found out Rock Climber Girl beat me to it! Luckily, I barely started my list so I’m currently helping edit and maintain her list of climbers who use Twitter.If you use Twitter, please check the wiki and if you’re not on it, fill out this form and we’ll get you added.
- Climbing Video: Dave Graham on The Island V15
Posted on Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008 in VideosSomewhat of an older video (the ascent was in April of 2008), but great footage nonetheless – Dave Graham on the first ascent of The Island (V15) at Coquibus Rumont, Fontainebleu (via TubeGuide).
- Lynn Hill Makes 7th Female Ascent of Chablanke (V11/V12) in Hueco Tanks
Posted on Tuesday, December 9th, 2008 in BoulderingLynn Hill has sent Chablanke (V11/V12) in Hueco Tanks, Texas making this the 7th female ascent of the problem.While it’s always to great to hear about strong sends from young(er) climbers, I’m always most impressed with news from climbers past the age of 40. I suppose it’s because as I get older I gain more inspiration knowing it’s still possible to climb harder!
- What Climbing Area Are You Writing About?
Posted on Wednesday, December 10th, 2008 in BlogsIn the past I’ve occasionally made pleas to climbing bloggers for various pet-peeves, so long time readers should find my new one none too surprising.As more climbing blogs proliferate, one thing driving me nuts is how so many posts are written on trip reports, climbing areas, and photos with no mention of the actual climbing location!Please, fellow climbing bloggers consider to mention the area’s location in your post.
- Bouldering in Morrison, Colorado
Posted on Tuesday, December 16th, 2008 in BoulderingA few weeks ago, I had a chance to check out the bouldering at Morrison in Colorado. It was an unusually gray and cloudy day, so I didn’t get many pictures, but I did want to write up my mini summary of the area.First off, Morrison is the kind of bouldering area where you will definitely need beta from the locals.

- Climbing Magazine 2008 Reader Survey
Posted on Tuesday, December 23rd, 2008 in MediaWhile print magazines are rapidly becoming less and less relevant, some of us still subscribe (like me!) and would like to see them improve.I received an email from Climbing Magazine with a link to their annual reader survey for both subscribers and non-subscribers. The survey is rather long, but I highly recommend filling it out and letting them know how to improve the magazine.
