In case summitting Africa’s highest peak wasn’t enough of an incentive on its own, why not Climb Kilimanjaro and help build a better health system for Africa? The Touch Foundation, a non-profit organization based in New York, and working extensively in Tanzania to address the health care crisis in sub-Saharan Africa, is looking for climbers willing to participate in its “Climb for Health” campaign.

The film 'North Face' is playing on January 29th at the Beekman Theatre, Lincoln Plaza Cinema and the Sunshine Cinema.
Based on a true story, North Face is a suspenseful adventure film about a competition to climb the most dangerous rock face in the Alps. Set in 1936, as Nazi propaganda urges the nation’s Alpinists to conquer the unclimbed north face of the Swiss massif — the Eiger — two reluctant German climbers begin their daring ascent.

Climbers (or anyone interested in learning to climb),
Just posting an announcement for an introductory climbing course being offered by the AMC in the early Spring. The Appalachian Mountain Club (www.outdoors.org) is a non-profit community that is broken into regions throughout the Northeast. Within each region, there are committees that organize outdoor weekend excursions for hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, backpacking, etc. Each year, the climbing committee of the NY-Northen NJ Chapter offers a four day introductory course for 18 lucky students that teaches what you need to know to safely set up toprope anchors and second (or follow) trad leaders on multi-pitch climbs (like those at the Gunks). In addition, if you pass the course, you will be included on the committee’s roster, instantly providing you with other safe climbing partners to hit the Gunks with on weekends and invitations to planned trips to nearby climbing areas like Rumney, the Adirondacks and Seneca Rocks…even occasionally to less nearby locations like Red Rocks and El Potrero Chico.
