[Sponsor] Black Diamond Apparel

My thanks to Black Diamond for sponsoring a portion of this site the past couple of months to promote their new men’s clothing line.  I had the chance to check out much of the new gear at an event here in Boulder a couple months ago, and if I wasn’t in recovery for being a jacket addict I would have probably walked out of there with at least a couple new items.  Check them out if you or someone you know is looking for some new outerwear.

Climbing Beyond Boehner’s Reach

Freddie Wilkinson takes to the Op-Ed section of The New York Times to talk about how the government shutdown has affected the climbing scene in Yosemite:

The most anticipated event of this climbing season was to be an effort by Tommy Caldwell of Colorado to lead a team of climbers to become the first to free climb the Dawn Wall — that is, climbing by hand and foot without using gear to make upward progress — a feat Mr. Caldwell has been pursuing for the last seven years. Chris Sharma, a reigning icon of the action-sports world, was to join the climber Kevin Jorgeson in the effort, which they ended up postponing.

“It’s like Michael Phelps showing up at the Olympics, only to find the pool has been drained,” said Andrew Bisharat, an editor for Rock and Ice Magazine.
