After 2 years on the @fiveten_official Youth team, I’m now the youngest member of the Five Ten Elite Team. It feels unreal to be in such amazing company! #proud #honored #fiveten #climbing #bouldering #rockclimbing (at Magic Wood, Switzerland)
Proud of this kid. Get it Mirko!
"We all know the American Dream is dead, and its absence has left a hole in the psych of many people 30 and under… Sport climbing, though completely frivolous, is the only institution in my life that offers me any sense that I can get ahead and make progress. When I’m out at crags with likeminded peers, and we are working on and occasionally succeeding in doing the hardest redpoints of our lives, it feels like we are the ones at last in control and speeding ahead on a beautiful crest."
On May 24, 1969, the BLM dedicated nearly 30,000 acres of public land west of Lone Pine, CA, as the Alabama Hills Recreation Area. Management plans are being considered that will eventually include a scenic trail system that people may walk and enjoy this geologic phenomena at a leisurely pace.
The Bureau of Land Management and the Alabama Hills Stewardship Group care for this area with the goal of preserving the hills in as close as natural state as possible for the enjoyment of future generations. This area hosts numerous and varied types of recreation. Motor touring, photography, rock climbing, exploring natural arches and viewing the swaths of wildflowers that bloom every spring are just a few of the over 40 activities that take place here.
