    dynamic weight changes and sighting lines, i'm guessing. running uphill you stop and rest you are fine. running downhill in talus you are potentially fucked if you try and stop.

    Eccentric loading. Skiing and downhill running are the two most eccentric-dominant sports I know.

    I agree with this. I've known plenty of sub 3 hour marathon runners who lack the legs to go top to bottom. Downhill running is great for the ski legs and vice versa.

    Class V kayaking...creek or big water is how I used to go into flow state. Theres a 15 mile run north of here you could lose yourself for 3-4 hours on.

    The problem its not something you can just do once in awhile and Ive grown away from it. Id like to say I could commit to getting back into it but I wont. It would be nice to find something like that feeling that you could do sporadically.

    Honestly the best bet might be some video game. I know it's not the same but I can't think of anything else that you might be able to do sporadically without risk of injury from not doing it enough.

    If you sporadically and furiously masturbate, you will get injured and it ain't pretty.

    In the search for eight missing climbers on India's second highest mountain, rescuers have salvaged seven bodies. Another missing person at Nanda Devi in ​​the Himalayas is still wanted, as the district administration in Pithoragarh announced on Monday.

    Eight climbers from Britain, the United States, Australia and India have been missing since May 24. The group wanted to climb an unclimbed peak of the 7817 meter high mountain when it was hit by an avalanche.

    Warren is a legend around these parts.
    I discovered this training technique on my own back in the day (20's). Running down the rocky trails of Mt Pisgah, Burke, and Bald Mtns really helped with coordination and staying light on my feet. If you did it correctly it was less impact than you would think. I felt like I was gliding down the mtns. Now that I'm older and my fast twitch isn't quite so fast, it is harder to run down smoothly in the more technical areas without beating on the knees.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    I like the fake summit photo idea. We were on top of the Aiguille du Midi, went out through the ice tunnel, there was a couple in full mountaineering gear out there. Full goretex suits, harnesses, harnesses, roped up, crampons, ice axes. The posed for a couple of camera phone pictures taken by their friend and then went back in the tunnel and left.

    you’ve probably already learned by now there is an entire industry built on selling outdoor gear to people who only plan on the purchase not the function.

    Clothes I get (I wear pRana moab pants even though I don't climb any more--they're really comfortable. BTW pRana is Columbia for people who think Columbia isn't for serious outdoor people.) But technical gear?
