It’s been more work than climbing this week, so here’s what I missed…

The Patagonia winter sale is still on. I still haven’t really shopped it, since my gear priority was a haul bag (check! ordered from Fish Products this week, and I can’t wait to get it, love it, and then tell you all how much I love it). is having their “Biggest Sale Ever,” up to 70% off on over 12,000 items, including more than just winter gear. CAMP biners, Black Diamond dogbones and biners, helmets, harnesses, and some worthy packs are among the markdowns.

Moving on from the shameless commercialism… in the world of climbing blogging…

I was thrilled to see @jennfields on this week with a post about the Ourey Ice Fest. And, here’s more from Jenn at Rock (er, ice) on, sister!

Via several sources, Trango Big Bro #5 has a recall notice. Check ’em out.

ClimbingPanda needs some entertainment, to keep her from spending all her money on gear (sounds familiar). Go keep a girl company, eh? She did break down and buy the DMM offsets… which I’m super jealous of.

Carlo Traversi’s recent posts on his climbing life and the challenges facing pro climbers have gotten a lot of attention (and a number of really thoughtful posts by folks in the world of climbing).

I don’t know how I’ve missed it before, but just found Peter Beal’s Mountains and Water blog this week (or rather, he found me). If you like my blog, you’ll love his blog.

And, last but not least, here’s more Bishop, Bishop, Bishop from Luke and Lizzy!

That’s about it for now. I’m looking forward to getting into the gym tonight, and have had fun with being nimble and flexible about my upcoming Red Rock trip planning this week. I also SERIOUSLY appreciate all the beta I’m getting from Red Rock locals and others regarding our (ahem) apparently very ambitious tick list.

What’s new with you?
