CLIMBERPOST.COM is a group of every day climbers who aren't sending 5.14's or pushing cutting edge Alpinism. We climb because we like it and we share it because we can. This is our journal, these are our thoughts, and these are our journeys.

“Oh…. Crap…. We’re in about 3 inches of water,” exclaimed Chase as he peeked out the tent to check the damage from the midnight storm.  “Dig a trench!” he yelled, as he scurried to put his raincoat on.  If I had been sleeping, this midnight call to action would have been stressful, but with the … Continue reading

Regarding Nature

My friend Kevin Curtis is an amazing writer and all-around fascinating person.  I had the opportunity to climb with him in the City of Rocks this summer.  We were able to hit-up Thin Slice and Terror of Tiny Town one morning.  He told me that he was going to do a quick summer ski-trip in … Continue reading

Crag Check: Makapuu Point

Some climbing locations become destinations because of the aesthetics of the rock, or the ultra-classic rock quality; others become so due to the environment. I recently took a trip with my family to the Aloha State, and during our stay on Oahu, we made the 45 minute trek down to Makapuu point, on the leeward … Continue reading

Arm And Hammer Pt. 2

Tanner and I had plans to go climbing on my birthday, you know the drill, grab some churros for breakfast and go out for a few hours of good climbing. We were tossing around some routes in little cottonwood and the plan was set, I would meet him bright and early.

The Early Bird | Steorts’ Ridge

Saturday mornings have become my last bastion of adventure. Having a grown-up job certainly accommodates smaller windows of opportunity to get out and play. That being said, I haven’t been necessarily deprived of recreation, but my complex schedule doesn’t allow for me to plan outings that are going to last for more than 4 or … Continue reading


Words by Parker Cross Images by Andy and Neena Earl Climbing appeals to an extremely large demographic. There’s a little bit of something for everyone (even acrophobics). Climbing, for me, is an opportunity to connect with nature in a really special way. Somehow I feel super-connected to the outdoors when I’m climbing and mountaineering/splitboarding. It’s … Continue reading
