Climbing this Week 2/24
All the fun stuff in the world of climbing and gear.
The first completely digital catalog came out this week, featuring alpine gear. The climbing catalog is set to appear sometime this spring – probably in time for warm weather and income tax returns.

CONWAY — It looked to be a regular day of ice climbing on Saturday when more than 20 climbers and guides piled into the Cathedral Ledge parking lot. But it wasn’t. That became obvious when Brian Fountaine sat down and took off his feet. It became more clear when Sean O’Neill rolled his wheelchair over the snow to get his climbing helmet. By the time Maureen Beck pulled out her prosthetic arm retrofitted with an ice tool there was no doubt something special was happening.
I bought a rope and some draws from some guy in a trench coat in an alley in the sketchy part of town, but they don’t have that fancy UIAA stamp on it. Should I be worried?
