    Cathedral Peak summit.

    @michaelpauljones @grantnyquist #internseth (AKA @seth_langbauer) all smiles on the summit before the late night suffer fest. The craziest thing about the summit was looking back at the mountains in the background and realizing we still had to head 25 miles over the mountains to get back down. It looked sooooo far away!

    Super high foot. Haha not sure if this is the most efficient way to climb this. (New River Gorge 10/07/13)
    This weekend at Red River Gorge for Rocktoberfest was phenomenal. I bagged my first clean 10, scored some free chalk and a .3 Black Diamond Cam (holy heck!) and had so much fun with the Purdue Outing Club. :)

    Get it girl!

    In celebration of Earth Day 2014, the Bureau of Land Management introduced three vintage posters and postcards depicting some of the spectacular landscapes of our National Conservation Lands. The purpose of the campaign is to highlight these ruggedly beautiful and culturally rich places that belong to all Americans.

    The inaugural posters and postcards artistically portray three different areas, illustrating the diversity of the landscapes protected under the system. They are Eagletail Mountains Wilderness Area in Arizona (www.blm.gov/az/st/en/prog/blm_special_areas/wildareas/eag…), Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument in Montana (www.blm.gov/mt/st/en/fo/umrbnm.html) and Headwaters Forest Reserve in California (www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/arcata/headwaters.html). This is a continuing series.

    There are now nearly 900 designated areas of National Conservation Lands spanning almost 27 million acres – or 11 percent of the lands managed by BLM. They include national monuments, national conservation areas, wilderness and wilderness study areas, national wild and scenic rivers, national scenic trails and national historic trails.

    Learn more about your National Conservation Lands: www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/blm_special_areas/NLCS.html

Nepal has called off the search for three local guides still missing, citing weather conditions, after a massive avalanche on Mount Everest that killed thirteen of their colleagues. (Photo: Prakash Mathema/AFP) 

    The avalanche occurred last Friday morning at around 6:45 am at an altitude of about 5,800 metres in an area known as the “popcorn field” which lies on the route to the treacherous Khumbu icefall. 

    The local Sherpa community has issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Nepalese government, threatening to boycott the upcoming spring climbing season, after a meeting at Mount Everest’s base camp in the wake of the deadly avalanche. Among the demands sent to Nepal’s Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, the group called on the state to provide 10 million Nepalese rupee (US$103,600) each to families of the deceased and critically injured, along with initiatives to increase the overall support infrastructure for local guides working in the Himalayas.

    Nepal’s Sherpas are lauded for their ability to withstand high altitudes and are widely regarded as some of the world’s hardiest mountaineers. Members of the ethnic group are the backbone of the Himalayan adventure-tourism industry, where they work as guides, porters and climbers.

    Around 4,000 people have scaled Mount Everest since 1953 when Tenzing Sherpa and Edmund Hillary made it to the summit of the peak. More than 250 people have died while attempting to climb the Everest. The latest accident  the worst of all times on Mt Everest  comes during the peak climbing months of April and May as hundreds of climbers converged at base camp in the hope of scaling the 8,848-metre-high summit.

    This spring I decided to switch things up and take a break from pebble wrestling. I traveled to Margalef, Spain to sample some hardcore routes that the area has to offer. One in particular was this horizontal cave climb called Llamps I Trons (5.14c). The style is powerful on 2 and 1 finger holds. Though the fingers take a beating, at the end of the day all is well in the comfort of my sanuks :)
