The trek around Gongga Shan reaches over 16,000 feet. You could probably find a peak to scramble up from the circuit.

I assume you already know this, but June is the monsoon and not the best time to climb and trek in the region.

I will be in Italy and want to tag Corno Grande. Just wondering if it's technical at all? The page mentions "one step II" but I have no idea what that means [emoji38]

In 1978 ,John Fischer & I found a first ascent record on Bivouac Peak between Middle Palisade & Clyde Peak that had been signed by Jules Eichorn % Glen Dawson on July 30 ,1930 .Only Don Jensen & clients had signed it twice in the 1960's .It was still there in 1979 .It is the oldest in place record I've ever seen.Glen Dawson was only 17 when he & Eichorn made their ascents in the Palisades during the Sierra Club High Trips.

My name is Sarah Smith and i usually do hiking alone and i keep myself focused by focusing on surroundings and preparing myself, also getting away from influence provides the opportunity to be yourself while solo hiking.

So If no one wants to hike with you, no problem—head to the summit yourself.

Yeah, but I don't think there should be a lot of confusion, as the name says what it is. If it's a training mask, it's called training mask, if it's one you use for sleep at high altitude, it's called 'sleep mask'. Pretty much self-explanatory. However you may want to add an extra line in the product description, saying what the mask is normally used for.

Hey!! I highly recommend Sean Wisedale, he was South Africa's first person to reach the 7 summits. I met him on Aconcagua as he was guiding others, and then met up with him again in Santiago after he led another group up Ojos del Salado. Although he travels doing other important summits, Kilimanjaro is what he does most. I just talked to him after he did a successful expedition up Kili about a month back. Really great guy, too!

Contact him at +27 83 255 5676 or Venture@hot.co.za

Have a great climb!

Nice summary, good writing, and well thought out.

Mark Twight is a very influential climber for my generation, both from his articles in climbing magazines and his seminal book "Extreme Alpinsim; Climbing High, Fast, and Light".

As an early adopter of CrossFit, much of the climbing community followed suite. He once made a statement that by training with CrossFit, one needed to train no more than 90 minutes. I called bullshit, knowing full well that for endurance sports (like alpine climbing) you had to incorporate endurance training.

Mark entered a ski-mo race and finished second to last and walked back his statement and conceded that endurance training was still necessary.

I think CrossFit has a lot of good ideas like HIIT and functional training and when combined with good old fashioned LSD can lead to a well balanced trainging program.

I would rather see one guy loose his shit over some post than no posts at all. Feeling a little dead around here, except for the first few posts in the forum. This would be a perfect time to make a bad death joke, but I will not.

I recently changed the registration process again to make it harder for bots to automatically register and when I did that I eliminated the manual approval process for accounts. So these guys are spending the human time to get past the CAPTCHA in order to use a bot to automatically spam. Annoying. But I think it's more annoying for new users to have to wait sometimes days to get their account approved. So we'll deal with the spam when it happens.

Is there a way to auto-ban any posts with certain Korean or Chinese characters in it?

I know some websites do this, but I don't know how it is done.

All the mass spammers are from Korea and China it seems. I don't think we have ever had valid forum posts using those characters.

Or require a Captcha to complete a post that contains suspicious characters. I know we sometimes have legit posts about Chinese and Korean mountains, and I'm pretty sure I've used a Chinese character or two myself.
