  1. I stop back in and I get this? Jeezus.
  2. Kind've none. We did shell out a couple of hundred bucks a year for a small ad in the back of Backpacker magazine. We worked with a few other great climbers over the years. Off the top of my head Mikey, Kate, Donini, Hahn, Huey, and a couple of film projects (one is on Netflix now I think).
  3. It could've been a lot worse. A few years ago they were talking about raising the Denali fee to $500 bucks. They gotta pay for the high camp and rangers.
  4. Give the folks at Redpoint a call. They have a women's climbing group that meets regularly out there and heads into the park.
  5. Easy to pontificate climber impact on a global scale when it relates to using resources to do what we like to do. However the real issues are STILL around climber behavior and how land managers agree or disagree with it. If climbers go by the rule that "there shouldn't be any", I'd say we're in for a bit of a dim future.
  6. Do you know what state he's in?

  9. I'll just add: because you can doesn't mean you should. I've crushed a few suspensions in my time driving passenger cars to places they shouldn't go. It'll get you there for sure, but not necessarily a good choice in the long run. That said, I'll go with VW Sportwagen TDI.
  10. Don't know if you can get much better than what you guys are driving now. Subaru just came out with a hybrid crosstrek, but it doesn't really get that much better gas mileage (I'm guessing that's what you mean by city car). Maybe a diesel?
  11. The AAC does partner with Nicholas Hill (Not sure if you're talking about the AAC acting as it's own insurance company). The rescue 'insurance' is technically a benefit of membership: $5k is available to members to help cover the cost of rescue incurred domestically, and an additional $5k is paid to Global Rescue to coordinate an international rescue. Since the only criteria is that it has to be climbing related no underwriters are needed to evaluate how much of a risk each member is. Whether it's climbing or not is a pass/fail test. Nicholas Hill Group and American Alpine Club life insurance
  12. I used to come here for the free beer. Where did that go?
