Noth­ing tells the tale of an epic adven­ture like the state of your gear when it’s over. If your gear could talk, which piece would have us lis­ten­ing with rapt atten­tion? What has seen the most trav­els, crossed the most miles, and shared the most memories?

Share a pic of that gear and tell us in 50 words or less (Hey, your gear is doing most of the talk­ing here!) why this gear has seen it all. You can post the pic to our Face­book wall, email it to contests@theclymb.com, or tag us on Insta­gram (#The­Clymb). We’ll pick three win­ners for Clymb credit.

And trust us: With the Black Fri­day event we have planned for you, you’ll appre­ci­ate the cred­it. You have until tomor­row at 5pm EDT to get your pics in.

We did it! The Clymb has reached one mil­lion mem­bers (and count­ing!) and it’s thanks to YOU!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our one mil­lionth mem­ber, Mike DeVan­zo! Mike will receive $1,000 in Clymb cred­it which should go a long way in fuel­ing his future human-pow­ered adven­tures. Mike was referred to us by Alex Piaz­za, who will also receive $1,000 in Clymb credit.

Just because we’ve reached a mil­lion, that doesn’t mean the cel­e­bra­tion ends. Start­ing today, we’re offer­ing free ship­ping for the week­end (through Sun­day, March 4th) to show our appreciation.

And just in time for free ship­ping today’s events offer up some of the best in out­er­wear, hel­mets, and eyewear:

KLYMIT returns to The Clymb with their noble gas-based insu­lat­ed out­er­wear, hard­shells, and ultra-light soft­shells for men and women. Also, VAUDE bike out­er­wear and acces­sories are high qual­i­ty and sure to per­form under any con­di­tion. Final­ly, the icon­ic uvex brings their opti­mum fit and pro­tec­tion to The Clymb with a selec­tion of bike hel­mets and eyewear.

Remem­ber, from now through Sun­day, you get FREE ship­ping on these and all the oth­er events cur­rent­ly fea­tured on The Clymb.

In case you missed it on Face­book, Clymb mem­ber Sta­cy Lamb made her local news talk­ing about an all-night Climbat­hon to ben­e­fit the Ronald McDon­ald house. That’s Sta­cy rock­ing a The Clymb t‑shirt. If you’d like to donate, you can find more info here.

Of course, you can pick up your very own The Clymb t‑shirt here.

Also Fea­tured This Week:

Ang­ie Rip­ple, Lucky Clymber

Put Your Feet First With Bogs, Plus OllyDog

Joshua Mon­tague, Every Day Clymber

SCOTT, Gre­go­ry, Teko, Plus a Gog­gles & Gloves Event

After hun­dreds of events fea­tur­ing dozens of the best brands for out­door gear and appar­el, The Clymb is approach­ing its one mil­lionth mem­ber. There is a lot of excite­ment and pride sur­round­ing this mile­stone, but also grat­i­tude. You’ve allowed us to accom­pa­ny you on thou­sands of human-pow­ered adven­tures all over the world.

As a token of our appre­ci­a­tion — and because it’s going to be a lot of fun — we’re going to award the one mil­lionth mem­ber $1,000 in Clymb cred­it. Also, because we would­n’t have reached this great accom­plish­ment with­out the sup­port of our mem­bers and their enthu­si­asm in spread­ing the word about The Clymb, we’re going to award the per­son who refers the one mil­lionth mem­ber $1,000 in Clymb cred­it as well!

For all the details, vis­it the offi­cial rules page here.

From now until we reach our mil­lionth mem­ber we’ll have fun games worth Clymb cred­it and awe­some fea­tures from some of our cur­rent mem­bers, and of course, our dai­ly events bring­ing you the brands you love.

The dead­line to sub­mit your pho­tos into our “I Wish I Was There” con­test has passed and all sub­mis­sions are now avail­able for view­ing on our Face­book page. We want to give a sin­cere thank you to all the entrants. This began as a fun Face­book con­test, but it has evolved into a tru­ly inspi­ra­tional expe­ri­ence with oth­er mem­bers and Face­book fans in absolute awe of all the adven­tures you’ve embarked on. We are hon­ored that you shared these mem­o­ries with us.

We received an unprece­dent­ed num­ber of entries and we had to lim­it each per­son to 2–3 pho­tographs per cat­e­go­ry. It seems a shame to pit them against each oth­er, yet we must. Here’s how we’ll do it:

Over the next few days our team at The Clymb will nar­row down each cat­e­go­ry (action and land­scape) to ten final­ists. We’ll then put the pow­er in your hands, allow­ing you to vote on the pho­to in each cat­e­go­ry that you find the most breath­tak­ing, the pho­to that most makes you say, “I wish I was there!”

When the vot­ing peri­od ends, the pho­to in each cat­e­go­ry with the most votes will win $50 to The Clymb. That’s right: We’ve increased the prize amount. We had to; those pho­tos are stunning!

In the mean­time, we encour­age you to peruse each fold­er on our Face­book wall and take in all the beau­ty. If you have a pho­to in the run­ning, please feel free to com­ment on it with fur­ther details. We’d love to hear the sto­ry behind such fas­ci­nat­ing pics.

I Wish I Was There Pho­tos — Land­scape | I Wish I Was There Pho­tos — Action

One of many gor­geous entries. — Man­a­do, North Sulawe­si, Indone­sia by Clement Laksana

Thanks to every­one who entered our Your Gear in Action pho­to con­test. Over 40 pho­tos were sub­mit­ted, all dis­play­ing Clymb-pur­chased gear in action. They were all great and much appre­ci­at­ed, but you know the say­ing, “There can only be one.” Well, in this case, three — three mem­bers have won a $50 cred­it to The Clymb. And they are:

Eri­ca Don­nel­ly in prAna

 

Jon Husen in Giro

And.…

 

Chris Lynn in KEEN

Con­grat­u­la­tions, guys! Please email me with your email address­es (the one you use for your Clymb accounts) so I can award your $50 cred­its! Send them to nina@theclymb.com

Thanks to every­one who sub­mit­ted. We enjoyed shar­ing in your adventures.

We want to see the gear you’ve pur­chased in action. Sub­mit a pho­to of you (or some­one else) using gear or appar­el pur­chased from The Clymb and you’re auto­mat­i­cal­ly entered for a chance to win one of three $50 cred­its to The Clymb.

Whether you’re rock­ing Reef san­dals, turn­ing back a SIGG bot­tle on a hike, or sail­ing down the slopes on a Jones board, we wan­na see it. You can post your pho­to with a cap­tion on our Face­book page or email them to me at nina@theclymb.com. I’m gath­er­ing the entries and dis­play­ing them in their own album on our Face­book page — look for that lat­er today.

We’ll pick our favorite three this Fri­day (5/20) and award the win­ners then.

Be cre­ative, but more impor­tant­ly, have fun! And if you need a mem­ber­ship, hit me up via Face­book or Twit­ter.

It has hap­pened to all of us; there’s an amaz­ing deal on a pair of hik­ing boots or back­pack on The Clymb, and we want to pass it along to every­one we know. First you got­ta copy the link, then you got­ta paste it in an email, and on Face­book, then on Twit­ter. Then you have to copy your invite code and send it to those friends who’ve not yet dis­cov­ered the awe­some­ness that is The Clymb.

It’s annoy­ing.

We’ve made it so much eas­i­er for you to share the great deals you find here. Each sale item now has a share but­ton for Face­book and Twit­ter on its page.

With one click you can post the sale details for indi­vid­ual items on your Face­book wall or on Twit­ter. Friends can click and shop, or sign up if they’re not yet mem­bers, and you’ll still get the refer­ral cred­it when they place their first order. Easy peasy.

Today we are proud to announce our  brand event with Horny Toad, you can save between 60–65% off every­thing in the event! The event runs for three days and will end Thurs­day morn­ing at 9am PST. As per usu­al we get to share a video that we think shows off the brand and is entertaining/useful to our mem­bers. For Horny Toad they made a com­pa­ny dance video. Yes… A com­pa­ny dance video. Awe­some? Yes. Fun? No doubt. Is it mak­ing us lim­ber up to make one of our own? I would­n’t go that far yet. Although I heard Kel­ly does a mean run­ning man. (Per­son­al­ly I pre­fer the cab­bage patch.)

Like it says in the video descrip­tion, “Work hard, play hard, cre­ate some­thing special.”

As always you need to be a mem­ber of the Clymb, if you would like an invite to the event you can Tweet us or let us know on Face­book.
