Many rock climbers struggle with how to best incorporate training into their busy day-to-day routine. Now climbers can cut straight to the important things, caffeine and NERDING OUT about climbing with the Metolius Bialetti "Coffee in a Pinch". Instead of a traditional metal handle, this innovative design incorporates a small in-cut Metolius climbing hold for the perfect "tiny euro café cup" squeeze warm up. The product is the brainchild of Montanan rock smasher @erikpallister who came up with the idea in order to optimize caffeine intake and training. "I wanted both an efficient way to warm up my fingers for a morning woody session and at the same time increase my overall anxiety levels for the day by consuming an excessive amount of caffeine," Pallister said about his inspiration for the innovative training device. #wow #coffee #bialetti #caffeine #metolius #climbing #rockclimbing #climbers @metoliusclimbing
Henry Schlotzhauer on a 60-meter mega endurance route called La canaleta (7c+). The route is composed of undulating tufa fins and involves a lot of powerful compression and technical stemming. It was definitely one of the more impressive sends I've witnessed! I'm always blown away by climbers that can execute proficiently on any style of climb. Well done, Henry!

White Bird Canyon, Idaho named after Chief White Bird of the Nez Perce. About 140 years ago this scenic valley was the site of the first of what would be a series of battles between U.S. military forces and the Nez Perce during their 1,100-mile flight from their ancestral homelands in northeastern Oregon. The Battle of Whitebird Canyon began at dawn June 17, 1877, after, for unknown reasons, U.S. forces fired on an approaching Nez Perce peace party. Nez Perce warriors returned fire, routed the attacking military and volunteer forces, and by mid-morning had forced them to retreat, with 34 U.S. Cavalry members killed and just three warriors wounded. #NezPerce #WhiteBird #Idaho #TheWest #Oregon photo: 1/2016
