Two very dear climbing friends, Sarah and Jeff, are getting married. Sarah is my climbergirl mentor… were it not for her careful nurturing during my formative climbing years, I would not be the climber — or, for that matter, the woman — I am today. In the best of relationships, the parties bring out the very best in each other, and that’s what I know of Sarah and Jeff together. I’m excited to celebrate with them, and their friends and families tomorrow, and excited to see where their life together takes them.

So, right now I’m wrapping wedding presents and listening to nontraditional love songs. It got me to thinking…

There’s got to be room for romance in climbing, right?

With that in mind, I’m pleased to announce the second contest!

To enter, please send your most romantic climbing or outdoors story to by Monday, June 15th at 8:00pm, Pacific Time. Send pictures, if you’ve got ’em!

Originally, this was announced as a “romantic stories in rock climbing” contest, but so far there hasn’t been an overwhelming response. Maybe the answer to the question posed above is… not so much. As a result, I’m expanding the criteria. Tell me your most romantic climbing or outdoors story, to enter to win!

Thanks to the fantastic folks at Kiss My Face, the winning story will receive a set of the Kiss My Face Suncare line. Kiss My Face is one of my all time favorite skin, hair and sun care brands. Their sun line provides UVA/UVB protection, with high SPF, no parabens, gentle ingredients, and recyclable packaging (and I’ve used and loved products from their line for years).

I can’t wait to start reading, so start writing! And, to the uber-patient @dloo, who’s still waiting for his prize from my first contest, I swear, I haven’t forgotten!
