Unlock­ing Cho Oyu: Did you know? On Octo­ber 19th (that’s today!), 1954, Her­bert Tichy led a climb­ing par­ty up the north­west ridge to the first suc­cess­ful sum­mit of Cho Oyu. At 26,906 feet, Cho Oyo is the sixth tallest moun­tain in the world, and it is the most acces­si­ble sum­mit of the world’s 14, eight thou­sand meter peaks due to the prox­im­i­ty of a glaciat­ed moun­tain pass that Tibetans and the Khumbu’s Sher­pas use as their main trad­ing route. Ini­tial climb­ing par­ties, how­ev­er, includ­ing Sir Edmund Hilary’s attempt in 1952, were turned away by the chal­leng­ing climb. It was not until Tichy and his men unlocked the north­west ridge with a route through a poten­tial­ly chal­leng­ing high-ele­va­tion crux move, that Cho Oyo became known as the eas­i­est of the world’s high­est sum­mits to climb.

First U.S. Woman Stands Atop Sum­mit of the World: Did you know? On Sep­tem­ber 29th (that’s today!), 1988, Sta­cy Alli­son of Port­land, Ore­gon became the first Amer­i­can woman to sum­mit the world’s high­est peak, Mt. Ever­est. It was her sec­ond attempt at the peak. She spent 29 days clam­ber­ing up the south­east ridge of the Himalayan giant before reach­ing the icy sum­mit of the world. At 29,305 feet above sea lev­el, she stood in the rar­i­fied air where jet­lin­ers fly and tem­per­a­tures often dip beneath ‑30F and there is not enough oxy­gen to sur­vive for an extend­ed peri­od of time. Ever­est is con­sid­ered the ulti­mate test-piece of a seri­ous mountaineer.

Hap­py Fri­day, Clym­bers. We’re excit­ed about tonight’s par­ty, where we’ll cel­e­brate The Clymb reach­ing one mil­lion mem­bers by clink­ing keg cups and attempt­ing to drop it like it’s hot on the dance floor with friends from the Port­land-area out­door indus­try. Colum­bia Sports­wear? KEEN? Which brand’s employ­ees are going to cut the mean­est rug? And will any of us be awake in time to go ski­ing on Sat­ur­day? It’s going to be a fun one. In the mean­time, we’ve got two great new events on the dock­et for you. Have a look and be sure to get out­side and do some­thing Clymb-wor­thy this week­end.

Before you go:

HOT TUB TRAVEL MACHINE: Did you know? Found­ed from a desire to equip hip­pie trav­el­ers with qual­i­ty gear, Eagle Creek was born dur­ing a series of infa­mous late-night hot tub plan­ning ses­sions in Idyll­wild, Cal­i­for­nia, in 1975.

I spent about five min­utes debat­ing the title to this post. The Uni­ver­si­ty of Oxford Writ­ing and Style Guide recent­ly decid­ed that writ­ers should drop the Oxford Com­ma. So, accord­ing to them, the title should read, “Cushe, Coal and Nomis.” Although, using it resolves ambi­gu­i­ty so that you know Coal and Nomis aren’t togeth­er. How­ev­er, with the com­ma, today’s event sounds like a law firm.

Yes, these are the things that keep me up at night.

Well, let’s get today’s events start­ed, shall we?

Cushe (pro­nounced Cushy) designs footwear that’s unique and chal­lenges the bound­aries of footwear design. In their case, love is in the details — the lit­tle things you can and can’t see that make their prod­uct that extra bit unique and spe­cial. And speak­ing of spe­cial, our mem­bers can shop Cushe footwear for men and women, start­ing today, at up to 55% off. Check out the Cushe event here.

Coal designs head­wear that are more than acces­sories because they under­stand that your style is a part of you, your per­son­al­i­ty — and why not have head­wear that is as unique as we are from one anoth­er? Shop an array of Coal’s bean­ies and fedo­ras at up to 60% off now. And if you’re so inclined, share pho­tos of your pur­chase on our Face­book page. Per­son­al­ly, I think every­one looks great in a fedora.

Nomis offers high qual­i­ty appar­el that looks as good as it fits. No, seri­ous­ly, their designs are awe­some. Check out our Nomis event with out­er­wear, appar­el, acces­sories and swimwear at up to 55% off here.

Make sure you check us out on Face­book (espe­cial­ly lat­er today when we’ll have a cool con­test announce­ment) or Twit­ter. We’re always around, wait­ing to answer your ques­tions or hand out invi­ta­tions to join.
