Top Tips for Winter Climbing - Alpkit
The top tips...

Stay fed and watered.

Find a glove system that works for you.

Find a layering system that works for you.

Make sure your boots fit properly.

Keep your feet warm (consider taking dry socks along with you!).

Prepare yourself for a long belay by taking a good belay jacket.

Make sure you have the appropriate gear!

This tip from Will Gadd has served me well over the years: the key to staying warm is to eat fat and protein prior to climbing, and mainly carbohydrates during the climb. I tried it and it worked for me, so I’ve stuck to it ever since.

Welcome to Joshua Tree. Sorry about the shutdown. Now, about the toilets … - Los Angeles Times
The federal government's partial shutdown has complicated life for many national parks, including Joshua Tree, Death Valley and Channel Islands, all within 220 miles of Los Angeles. Among them, Joshua seems to face the most visitors and challenges.

Crowdfunding Rescues | Evening Sends
Based on what we’ve seen over the last two years, we can safely assume that any climber’s disappearance will now result in friends, family, and the climbing community scrambling to figure out what can be done, if anything, to find or rescue the missing climber(s). Given this new reality, it’s arguably irresponsible to take a trip to the big mountains without making serious arrangements in advance to secure your own potential rescue.

UKC Articles - Cochamó: Multipitch Madness in Chilean Patagonia
I like to call Cochamó climbing trips a Beginner Level Expedition. I say this because it pretty much has all the makings of an expedition, with the seriousness of them toned down quite a bit: You're going somewhere isolated – but there is still quite a lot of people You have to bring all your own food – but if push comes to shove you can always leave for a day or two and get more You have no communication with the outside world – but in absolute Emergency you can get it If you fall and break your leg, it's going to be really really shit and a horrendous ordeal... but you won't get eaten by a Polar Bear.
