Article: Damnit, Jim, I'm a Climber Not a Carpenter
Fairly Good Advice, I am incorporating my campus board into a training wall so I built mine straight off the ground at a 22.5 angle, Some of the smaller bouldering gyms i've been to build their walls with 2x6 and a single sheet of plywood.

Also the important part that i felt was missing was that spacing has its standards, mainly that its normally 1' top to top on the rungs that are labeled with numbers... meaning 1-5-9 is a 10' move, so spacing is important but intermediate spacing can also be valuable for speed and reflex training...

Article: 13 Year Old Completes Everest Climb and Looks Ahead
5 out of 5 stars This controversial issue of a young kid climbing Everest should not be drawn down to punditry... From what I have gathered the kid made the decision on his own, and is fit enough to do the climb on his own. He is a big kid for his age and has accomplished a lot. I understand the criticism but in all reality it comes mainly from people who are jealous that they are not as fortunate. Why should we be judging and angry with a kid who has an amazing opportunity and feels that he can motivate people to be more active. I'm jealous myself, I love mountaineering and climbing of all sorts, if I had the chance to do this sort of thing I would take it in a heartbeat!
