Hi.  This is our new blog; “our” meaning yours too…assuming you’re a climber (or at least like to follow the exploits of, or converse with, climbers).

Our blog is called Inclined because we like what it means:

A slanted or angled plane not parallel to the ground–“The inclined nature of the terrain forced the hillwalkers to retreat”

An attitude of mind; a preference or disposition toward something–“She was inclined to take risks”

To bend or turn one’s ear towards a speaker in order to listen well–“He inclined his ear to the wise man”

The weblog of the AAC–“The spreadsheet became tiresome so he turned his attention toward the blog Inclined, until his boss dropped in”

Our goals for Inclined are two-fold:

1) Inspiration: the AAC is fortunate to be filled with, and surrounded by, some of the most accomplished and interesting climbers in the world—from yesterday and today. Inclined will be a vehicle for sharing their stories.  We’re not restricting ourselves to hall of fame types.  If you have a good story to tell, and it’s about your experiences related to the vertical world, tell it here.

2) Conversation: Inclined is a place where AAC members, the climbing community at large, and club staff can interconnect.  This is a place where your voice can be heard. Likewise, it’s a place where we can create a deeper understanding of the various ways we support the climbing way of life, protect the places we climb, and sustain climbing culture.

If you like what you’re reading so far, stay tuned.  And if you’ve got something to say, say it here.

Dave M.
