The first rule of Soup Club is, you don’t talk about Soup Club. But no rule explicitly states that you can’t write about it. So you can believe me when I say that we started a Soup Club at Clymb HQ and that, as with The Clymb itself, membership is surging. The executive powers-that-be, possibly hoping to study the explosive growth of our organization, recently bought a crock pot for the kitchen. It’s seen heavy use. So far, the soups have been hearty and satisfying; nobody has been stricken down by Giardia or any other potential broth-born illness. While it’s unlikely that someone will get sick from an unmolested soup, the risk of sabotage cannot be ignored.
There is a fringe group of colleagues who have managed not to take a single sip of soup, knowing that doing so would oblige them to make a soup of their own at some point. They hold the club with a certain disdain that could prove to be dangerous—particularly with so much hot sauce in the cupboards nearby. But those who have pledged their allegiance to Soup Club know it’s only a matter of time before every one of them crosses the line. The inevitability of membership in Soup Club is denied only by the dissenters, a new one of which drops every day. And what’s that intoxicating aroma emanating from the kitchen? That’s the sweet smell of a nice ham bisque cooking in the pot for this afternoon’s lunch. Yes, another will soon fall.
There’s a lot more cookin’ today at The Clymb than bisque. We’ve also got some great products on the menu, including sunglasses, sleeping bags, longboards, and Men’s everyday apparel. What are you waiting for? Scoop up some sweet gear while the deals are hot.

Sleeping With a Mail-Order Millionaire: Did you know? Sierra Designs makes some of the best, most technologically advanced, sleeping bags on the market. But they didn’t invent the concept. That honor belongs to wildly successful Welsh entrepreneur Pryce Jones—better known as the father of mail order shopping, which he also invented. In 1876, Jones patented the Euklisia Rug, a “bed and blanket” combo that he produced for the Russian army. The Euklisia Rug (also called the Brown Army Blanket) was little more than a six-by-three-foot Welsh wool rug that users were instructed to roll themselves up in. Some models were offered with a pillow sewn in. After the Battle of Plevna in 1877, Russia canceled a 60,000-order contract, forcing Jones to market his remaining supplies around the world to be, among other things, “utilized by the poor.” How right he was. Just ask a ski bum.
