Popular Posts & Videos For August 2010

After a quiet month of July, which mainly stemmed from my 2 week vacation, ClimbingNarc.com was firing on all cylinders during the month of August.

The month began with the UBC Pro Tour’s stop at the 2010 Outdoor Retailer Trade Show.  Events at that show led to a blog post by Alex Johnson which led to one of the most read posts in the history of this blog.  Many more of you became fans of ClimbingNarc.com on The Facebook (with a few of you winning prizes).  And the month ended with some actual climbing news after Angie Payne’s historic repeat of The Automator.  Here are the most popular posts for August 2010 that cover those topics and more:

August also saw the introduction of a new way for me to share videos from Vimeo.  Now videos appear on the home page, at the bottom of individual articles and on the new Video Page.  Here are the top 5 most watched videos from the month of August:

In the summer of 2010 a group of us spent 2 and half months in one of the best bouldering spots in the world. So much climbing went down that unless your ICB you can’t capture it all. I’ve compiled some footage and this is the video from the beggining of our trip. Wanna see some cool lines. Alex Savage, Les Warnock, Kenyon Smith, and Ian Cotter-Brown star in this short about doing whatever it takes to have fun.
