We just received this email:
"Day 3 of our Ski and Sail adventure in the Lyngen Alps. That morning we arrived at the beach of Uloya and skinned up a Kjelvagtinden 1034M. We could resist a photo with the #mountaineerbandana. I gifted the bandana to our Guide, Soren, hopefully he has it on his way around the world, one ski trip at a time"

Tuckerman Brewing Company is back this year bringing along tons of kegs of free beer for you all to drink at Apres Hour and the evening events. They generously support our climbing community year after year and we are so grateful. In addition to the Pale Ale and Fall Line, they will also be bringing a specialty keg each night of the brewer's choice. Fun! Surprises! Also, like last year, be sure to purchase an awesome BPA-free, clear cup with awesome logos on it at Apres Hour- proceeds will benefit Mountain Rescue Service!

Senior Field Supervisor Mike Martin took this video last week to illustrate what the washed out sections of the Chimney Pond Trail look like while hiking. Use caution in these areas as shell ice often hides rocky holes that can cause falls and potentially a lower leg injury. ... See MoreSee Less

John Price shared this photo with us that he took recently of Will Gadd on a newly developed mixed route at the Temple of Silence on the Icefields Parkway in Canada. Gadd wrote in an earlier post, “The Temple is a complicated place—big avalanche hazard, raucous driving on the Parkway, and a solid hike. But it’s worth it. How hard are the routes? Like surfing, take a look at the photos and stories and decide if you want to be there or not. Ice and mixed grades are blurry at best, and usually miss the point totally. This place starts at M-hard and goes to M-silly, enjoy!”

My friend Karn Kowshik, Himalayan climbing guide, on the second ascent of "Grandma's Still" at Poko today. The rarely formed route has come in further right and thicker making it a grade easier, and it even took screws! Good job Karn ... See MoreSee Less
