    Nepal earthquake: Mount Everest climbs 'almost impossible'

    Climbing Mount Everest this season is "almost impossible" because the routes have been damaged by avalanches triggered by last month's earthquake, officials in Nepal say. They warn that it will take time for the routes to be remade. The government has not announced an official decision. At least 19 people were killed in the avalanches. The 7.8-magnitude earthquake is now known to have killed more than 7,000 people and injured more than 10,000.

    Teens climb the Shenzhen Centre a whopping 660 meters of vertical insanity

    For more than a year ago we’ve climbed Shanghai Tower certainly not expecting the resonance and the amount of feedback we’ve got. And so, that amount of feedback led us to an idea of making a tradition of roof toping new skyscrapers all around the world. Today’s hero of attention is a new financial center still under construction and is situated in Shenzhen, China. Right now its height is about 660 meters and that makes it the second tallest tower in the world. Right after Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

    The Best Multi-Pitch Knot You've Never Heard Of

    Whether you’re doing a three-pitch free climb or a 3000-foot big wall, multi-pitch climbing is all about efficiency. Every little time-saving action, every slightly more streamlined step, adds up to saving you precious hours - it’s the difference between climbing the last hundred feet of 5.9 offwidth by headlamp and topping out to a perfect sunset and sipping a beer by dark.

    Damn is it hot. Like, really hot. Arizona is always miserable, but it’s barely dipped below 110 in Phoenix lately. Much of the rest of the country is broiling in the 90s, and although Boston still has snow, it too is sweating in the sun. For those of you suffering through heat, perhaps photographer Ian MacLellan can offer a little relief.

    The climb that left me frozen with fear

    There are thousands of industrial chimneys in the Czech Republic, with many dating back to the late 19th Century - most are no longer used and a group of enthusiasts spend their weekends climbing the structures. Alastair Lawson joined them in Zelezny Brod, but soon regretted it. I am 40m (130ft) up a 120-year-old chimney in the north-east of the Czech Republic and I am having a minor panic attack. My legs feel like lead weights as I look down on the tiny figures on the ground below me.

    Crack Climbing

    Good face climbers can interpret complex hand and foot sequences, moving efficiently from one body position to the next constantly shifting their center of gravity relative to their hands and feet. Crack climbing sequences, however, are often repetitive, ascending the seam of the crack like an inchworm. Of course, body position is still important in crack climbing, but perhaps the greater challenge for the aspiring crack climber is figuring out how to create "holds" from vertical cracks.

    The coming of the glacier men

    When climbers go missing on high mountains it can be decades before their frozen remains are found in the snow and ice. But around the world, mountain ice is now receding. Does the rise in global temperatures provide hope to families who never had a body to say goodbye to? "I'm always looking for things, or colours, that don't belong in nature, and you can see that quite often, crampons, rucksacks," says Alpine rescue pilot Gerold Biner.
