Little Blue Climbing Pill?

May 12th, 2011

May is the busy season on Mount Everest, with nearly three dozen expeditions on the mountain right now.

There are hang gliders, paragliders, speed climbers, fund-raisers, and one group from the UK that is experimenting with the little blue pill.

For years, doctors have touted the benefits of Viagra for climbers. According to David Hempleman-Adams, leader of the Iceland Everest 2011 expedition, his team is experimenting with the drug and members hope it allows them to take in more oxygen at a higher altitude because of its ability to expand the blood vessels in their lungs (the same reason it helps with sexual dysfunction).

Go ahead…. You know you want to say it:  This is going to be one long, hard climb.

Everest Climber to be At City Rock This Afternoon

November 1st, 2010

Eric Alexander

Everest climber, Eric Alexander, will be at City Rock today from 1 – 3. He will give a brief presentation of some of his adventures and the debut of his new book, The Summit. Immediately following the discussion, you will have the opportunity to experience an indoor climb with Eric and students from the Colorado School for the Deaf and Blind. You can find more about the event here.

Eric has interesting story with mountaineering. He survived a 150′ fall in the Himalayas on Mt. Amadablam in 2000 and then developed pulmonary edema and had to be air lifted out. The next 8 months he struggled with pneumonia and couldn’t train for Everest. Still on May 25th, 2001, Eric defied the odds and scaled Mt. Everest guiding his blind friend Erik Weihenmayer to its lofty 29,035′ summit.

127 Hours Trailer – Aron Ralston Story

September 24th, 2010

A few weeks ago, Deb wrote about 127 Hours, the movie being made about Aron Ralston. Soon after that they released the trailer for the movie. The movie is to be in theaters on November 5th.

The movie should be interesting although I hope it’s realistic and doesn’t show things that wouldn’t really be done by experienced outdoors people. In any case based on the trailer, I think it’ll be worth seeing just for the incredible views.

The Ultimate Triathlon

July 9th, 2010

If you love extreme adventures, you’re going to love this guy.  Charlie Wittmack is an adventurer from Des Moines, Iowa, who left last week on a world triathlon.  Wittmack’s tri will take him 12,000 miles over 13 countries.  Starting in the icy waters of the River Thames in England and ending with a climb to the summit of Mount Everest, Wittmack will swim, bike and climb.  

The numbers are astounding – he will swim 275 miles, bike 9,000 miles from France to India, and climb or run 950 miles over 11 months, ending with a short jaunt up the flank of Mount Everest.  Wittmack is a world-class climber who has climbed Everest before, trekked across East Africa, sailed the Indian Ocean in a handmade boat, and ridden 5,100 miles on a bike across the U.S., but he’s not just doing this for the thrills.  He is also working to draw attention to global health issues, including an initiative on safe child-bearing in Nepal, and to develop an innovative educational curriculum. 

To follow Wittmack’s world triathlon attempt, go to his site at theworldtri.com
