Climbs and Climbers to Follow – 7/28/10

Posted on: July 28th, 2010 by Erik Lambert

Need to be quick today, so here’s a few climbing blogs we love, for your Wednesday hump-day reading pleasure:

Kelly Cordes. The title of this post is "My Thick Skull (and drink recipe)." Photo courtesy of


“Climbing, Writing and the Art of Margaritas.” This is the blog of Kelly Cordes, climber,  writer, and member of the editorial team for the American Alpine Journal. Besides gnarly climbing stories (full accounts of his fall and ankle/foot recovery process over the past few months here) and great margarita recipes, Kelly’s blog is full of fantastic writing and well-thought-out connections of climbing to life.


Totally self-explanatory, and equally awesome. Today’s post: “First ascent anatomy: the making of a modern sport route.” Each day you’ll find a tip, gear review, or just a thought on climbing.

AAJ 2010.


Shameless self-promotion. If you don’t know that the AAJ is online yet, you should. Reports of the worlds’s greatest climbs are added throughout the year, often with more depth and detail than what eventually goes into the printed book. Click “new” to read the latest additions. The 2010 printed book, by the way, is in the mail to members as we speak. Anybody get theirs yet?
