Nine-Year-Old Becomes Youngest to Climb El Capitan

Not all kids are obsessed with Fornite and Tik Tok. Nine-year-old Pearl Johnson likes to climb, particularly El Capitan, and this September she became the youngest person to scale the granite monolith. The climb up the Triple Direct route took her four days and three nights, and she was joined by her mother and a family friend. She’s joins the ranks of young gals who have set their sights on the Yosemite’s pinnacle climb—for example, 10-year-old Selah Schneiter, who climbed the Nose in June.

Originally Pearl hoped to climb the Nose, but it was too busy. They pivoted their plans instead to climb the Triple Direct route. The young climber is no stranger to Yosemite; both her parents, Janet and Philip, are locals who have spent decades climbing in the park. Alex Honnold was even her neighbor when he was filming Free Solo. At times Pearl was nervous, but she was determined to make it to the top. The last day of climbing was by far the most challenging: a hail storm moved in, forcing the team to climb in frigid temperatures. Despite being scared and cold, Pearl persevered to finish the route.

Vail CEO Rob Katz Pens Open Letter About Next Ski Season

Vail CEO Rob Katz wrote a letter with a message for the upcoming ski season. Flickr photo. Back in March, Vail and other large ski industry corporations were faced with the tough decision of closing their resorts – essentially killing off their main revenue streams – in response to the growing COVID-19 pandemic. At this point, it’s unfortunately become clear that we’re all in it for the long haul, and many ski resorts have been asking themselves existential questions about the upcoming

These Eco-friendly Alternatives to Plastic are Something to Celebrate About

All it takes is one quick trip to the grocery store to see that we consume an absurd amount of single-use plastic. Your toothpaste tube is plastic. The pasta you bought for dinner is packaged in plastic. Your favorite granola bars come in—you’ve probably guessed already—plastic. If you don’t want to hear any more depressing news reports about dead whales full of plastic, then we’ve got to do more than recycling our water bottles and hummus containers. We need to find an alternative for all

In the Garage: Buying Used Bikes

I get it. Mountain biking is expensive. Like really, really, expensive. And in all honesty, unless you have the money, it’s really not worth buying a brand-new bike. Like a car, it’ll lose a good bunch of its value immediately (not that it matters, since the value truly comes from the fun times you and the bike get out on the trail). That being said, if you look in the right places, you’re more than likely to find a fully-capable used bike for a good bit less than a new one. Or better yet,
