"Life is brought down to the basics: if you are warm, regular, healthy, not thirsty or hungry, then you are not on a mountain... Climbing at altitude is like hitting your head against a brick wall - it's great when you stop."

The Alpine Start. "The Alpine Start was conceived as a way of expanding my on-again, off-again blog, which was sometimes about climbing, and sometimes about nothing much at all. Having something more ‘official’ would also force me to actually write and update the content more often than ‘once in a while.’ This site is dedicated to the ice, alpine and mixed climber looking for information on clothing and climbing gear, route beta for selected climbs in the Canadian Rockies, as well as various tips and tidbits found on the web. As such, I welcome you to The Alpine Start. Explore, and enjoy!" By Rafal Andronowski.
Rollo mixed. Pohjoisen talvikiipeilystä. Talvikiipeilyä pohjoiskalotin alueella. Aika paljon pakitusta, satunnaisesti myös sendausta. Teräviä esineitä, vastenmielisiä olosuhteita ja heikkoja mieliä. Kalottialueen paskimmat vitsit. Ulkoliikunta ja terveelliset elämäntavat. BD, Ettan ja punkku. Aika vähän pultteja, ei ollenkaan istumalähtöjä. Ei eliminaatteja, ehkä off-route joskus, mutta sekin aina pilkun jälkeen. By Tapio Alhonsuo.
Haukkari. Olet eksynyt kiipeilyaiheiselle sivustolle, jossa kiipeilyn sijasta keskitytään uhoamiseen, palan mittaamiseen ym. paskan jauhantaan. Sivustolla julkaistavat jutut ja kuvat eivät täytä minkäänlaisia journalistisia normeja, eivätkä edusta muutenkaan ns. hyvää makua. Sivuilla julkaistavat kuvat on lähtökohtaisesti ottanut Saku Korosuo, joka myös pidättää kaiken maailman oikeudet kuviinsa. Mikäli Herra on itse päässyt kuvaan, on kameran takana Anu Hankala. Muissa tapauksissa (c) mainitaan erikseen. By Saku Korosuo.

The Weight My Rack Blog. We’re get so stoked on gear that we started a website (called Weight My Rack) to put every piece of gear in one spot (actually, we started WeighMyRack because we were super frustrated researching gear and sick of getting suckered into buying the “on sale” gear). So WeighMyRack is for researching and comparing gear specs. The WeighMyRack BLOG is for learning and stories. We will tell the tales not heard elsewhere, ranging from manufactures to the folks that use gear daily. We’ll bring the behind the scenes stories forward, to help get one stoked on the gear you already own or the gear you could own. Really, anything gear related (we define “gear” as: the things you bring on a climb) is fair game on this blog. We want to bring the fun. By Alison Dennis & Andreas.

Sam Elias mixed climbing in Colorado. As a part-time Black Diamond ski tech rep and a full-time Black Diamond climbing athlete, Sam Elias may have been a ski racer growing up but now he's a rock and ice hard charger with numerous 5.14 and M12 redpoints and first ascents to his credit. We sent pro lensman Boone Speed out to Colorado to capture a little slice of Sam's life and style, as well as some beastly mixed climbing action. By Black Diamond Equipment on 2011-01-28.
