U.S. names 55 colleges facing sex assault investigation

ASU didn't make the list, but some of the big schools in CO did. It is clear that rape culture on college campuses is still thriving. Stand up against violence against women, report incidents, make a big deal if you hear someone saying or joking about an assault, and try to help someone out if you see they are in need. Let's help end this! Unprecedented release of names comes after White House promised greater government transparency on sexual assault in higher education

14 Year Old Kai Lightner Sends Lucifer 5.14c

Hell ya! Always glad to see some diversity in our whitewashed sport. One of the highlights of CCS Nationals was seeing so many climbers from different backgrounds. My April 2014 trip to the Red was my longest outdoor trip ever. My ten day trip was 50/50 climbing versus hanging out with my friends. It was awesome! On this trip, I quickly became obsessed with the route Lucifer...

ASU Climbing has been giving it hell at CCS Nationals in FL. Competition was stiff but we all climbed well for the heat, humidity.

[04/15/14]   Florida Ho! ASU Climbing is off to Nationals. A low of 70° is forecast for our time there. Not prime conditions when you train in CO, but we'll cope. Give it hell team!

RICE: The End of an Ice Age

Is ice misused as a treatment for injuries? Fighting inflammation goes against our body's healing mechanisms. Check it out and see what you think. "Coaches have used my “RICE” guideline for decades, but now it appears that both Ice and complete Rest may delay healing, instead of helping." - Gabe Mirkin, MD, March 2014 In 1978, Gabe Mirkin, MD...

Off the Wagon - Valle Bavona

Off the Wagon, AKA how to campus. Watch how Niccolo leads his motion with his legs and then moves his hand. Mastery of movement is one of the greatest skills you can gain as a climber.

College Athletes Granted the Right to Unionize—Is This the End of the NCAA?

Interesting development in the world of college athletics and the NCAA. I've long questioned the big money role athletics play at the college level and wondered how it effects everything from the athletes, to the quality of education for the average student. Any thoughts? The monumental ruling could change the face of college athletics, as we know it.

[03/07/14]   Hey everyone, This is Matt and I was wondering if would be willing to give me some feedback on the hot pink route that i set last weekend. thanks

[01/27/14]   New Routes going up at the wall, stop by and check them out.

ASU Climbers tearing up the Surreal Estate Wall at Shelf Road. Eric is on Heavy Weather 5.12a and Connor is on Unusual Weather 5.11c. It was a beautiful day with plenty of sends and plenty of fun!

ASU Climbing went to Shelf Road yesterday to clip some bolts. Here's Mike Cherneski hanging draws on Back to the Future 5.11c, which Jarod Lucero was able to flash! Fun times, let do it again soon!

[12/25/13]   Merry Christmas to everyone! I hope Santa brought you some goodies, new rock shoes, a harness, or some other sweet gear! I'm hoping Santa has a few sends in his sleigh for me!

[12/05/13]   I'm at least a little bummed. I found out Nationals will be in Florida again. You know Florida, highpoint of 300', no rocks, 400% humidity and old folks, lots of old folks. Sounds like the absolute best option for a climbing location. But we know how to overcome adversity! Put your game face on ASU Climbers, the time to crush begins right now!

[11/09/13]   Big shout out to ASU climbers for their great performance at last night's SoCo Loco Competition!
Eric Learn 3rd place Mens Advanced
Hanna Phillips 1st Place Womens Intermediate
Cecilia Casaus 1st Place Womens Rec
Rod Kilburn 1st place Mens Rec

I'm extremely pleased with every ASU climber who competed. Great job guys and girls!

Ciudad De Dios 9a/+

Santa Linya Ho! You gotta love Spanish limestone, steep and burly! In the video Tom says he fell 40 times on one move! It goes to show, climbing is hard, and to achieve the goals you set, you have to work hard, really hard. Failure is what makes success so sweet!

This is a Deadpoint Magazine piece withTom Bolger from the UK. Tom took a day to shoot this route, which at the time was one of his hardest. The very physical…


One of my favorite sport climbing vids. Ethan is Bone Crusher! Notice how relaxed he is and how he shakes his hand with almost every move to aid anaerobic recovery (fight the PUMP!)
