Grand­moth­er of Con­ser­va­tion: Did you know? Out­door enthu­si­asts seek­ing a rea­son for rev­el­ry today should cel­e­brate the life of Mar­garet Thomas Murie, one of the most influ­en­tial con­ser­va­tion­ists of the past 100 years. Born August 18 (that’s today!), 1902, Murie was a nat­u­ral­ist, author, and adven­tur­er whose con­ser­va­tion work earned her the Audubon Medal, the John Muir Award, the title “Grand­moth­er of the Con­ser­va­tion Move­ment” by both the Sier­ra Club and the Wilder­ness Soci­ety, and the Pres­i­den­tial Medal of Freedom—the high­est civil­ian hon­or award­ed by the Unit­ed States. Even if you’re not famil­iar with Murie, you’ve prob­a­bly heard of her work. Among oth­er feats, she is respon­si­ble for the cre­ation and sub­se­quent dou­bling in size of the Arc­tic Nation­al Wildlife Refuge. Murie passed away in 2003 but you can cel­e­brate her birth­day today by throw­ing on some John Den­ver. Renowned for their adven­tures in Alas­ka, she and her hus­band inspired him to write the bal­lad, “A Song For All Lovers.”

May Day? May­day? Help! Did you know? Every year on May 1 (that’s today!), peo­ple across the world cel­e­brate May Day, a spring fes­ti­val dat­ing back thou­sands of years to pre-Chris­t­ian Europe. That par­tic­u­lar May Day nev­er real­ly caught on in the Unit­ed States but anoth­er one that you’re prob­a­bly more famil­iar with did: ‘May­day’, the inter­na­tion­al call sig­nal that radio oper­a­tors say three times in suc­ces­sion when their craft is in dire straights. ‘May­day’ was coined by a British radio offi­cer who based it on the French “Venez m’aider,” which means, “come help me.”

Hap­py Tues­day, Clym­bers. Hope­ful­ly you’ve been able to get out there and enjoy some of this snow. But late-sea­son pow­der isn’t the only thing caus­ing a buzz in the out­doors right now. All over the coun­try, thru-hik­ers are mak­ing final prepa­ra­tions to wend their ways down the nation’s gru­el­ing tran­sect routes, such as the 2,627-mile Pacif­ic Crest Trail and the 2,178-mile Appalachi­an Trail.

As you read this, many of these would-be titans of trekking are pro­cras­ti­nat­ing from work, map­ping trail dis­tances and sort­ing out drop points in their minds. Soon, en route to vic­to­ry, they’ll pass through mul­ti­ple states and over hun­dreds of demor­al­iz­ing moun­tains. They will encounter beast aplen­ty. Of course there’s snow in the moun­tains, but it kin­da makes you want to strap on the back­pack and go for a hike, does­n’t it?

Just because you’ve com­mit­ted to ride out win­ter for all it’s worth does­n’t mean you should miss out on an oppor­tu­ni­ty to gear up for next sea­son’s adven­tures. Today’s events  cel­e­brate the would-be thru-hik­er in us all by fea­tur­ing an assort­ment of gear, tech­ni­cal appar­el, and acces­sories for light­weight trekking down any trail.

Trekking Essen­tials: Scott Williamson knows a thing or two about being light of foot on the trail. In 2011, the 39-year-old tree climber from Truc­k­ee, Cal­i­for­nia set a new speed record on the Pacif­ic Crest Trail (PCT), trekking over 2,627-miles from Cana­da to Mex­i­co in just 64 days. Whether tack­ling the PCT or a week­end camp­ing trip in the back­coun­try, today’s trekkers are push­ing bound­aries, sac­ri­fic­ing tra­di­tion­al dis­tance-trek com­forts for the light­est loads. Sleep­ing pads are get­ting small­er. Hard-boiled eggs and kiel­basas are falling vic­tim to dehy­drat­ed foods and light­weight sub­sis­tence snacks. Alu­minum trekking poles are trump­ing heavy walk­ing sticks. Look­ing to light­en your load as you gear up for a new sea­son on the trail? We’ve got you cov­ered. Today at The Clymb, we’re offer­ing a wide selec­tion of Men’s and Women’s Trekking Essen­tials, includ­ing packs, poles, camp­ing pads, microfiber tow­els, tech­ni­cal appar­el, footwear, shel­ters, ham­mocks, eye­wear, knives, and more.

Tool Log­ic: Let’s be hon­est with our­selves. Moth­er Nature is real­ly more like an old­er sib­ling. She doesn’t want to hurt us or force us into help­less sit­u­a­tions from which there is seem­ing­ly no escape—but she will do either at the slight­est provo­ca­tion. Head­ing into the great out­doors is like tres­pass­ing in said old­er sibling’s bed­room. The door is open but BEWARE. Tool Log­ic makes light­weight com­pact tools, knives, and flash­lights to sur­vive what­ev­er fall­out you incur—from hav­ing to smash out a win­dow to access locked-in keys, to need­ing super-bright LED light­ing to sig­nal a res­cue chop­per. Today on The Clymb we’re offer­ing a wide selec­tion of inno­v­a­tive Tool Log­ic mul­ti­pur­pose res­cue tools, sur­vival cards, and key rings fea­tur­ing all sur­vival neces­si­ties, from blades to mag­ne­sium fire starters. Pro­tec­tion from noo­gies not included.

Spring Snow­poca­lypse with Spy­der, Sur­face Skis, CELTEK and more


Not many out­side of adven­ture-seek­ing cir­cles had heard of Andy Lewis before this past Sunday’s Super Bowl Half­time Show. Today, peo­ple can’t stop talk­ing about the toga-clad, curly-haired ball of bounc­ing ener­gy being kissed by Madon­na.  SkAndy (Sketchy Andy), BASE Pro, and Slack­line King are all apt names giv­en to the 25-year-old.

That per­for­mance also made ‘slack­lin­ing’ a house­hold name. Slack­lin­ing is the act of bal­anc­ing along a nar­row, flex­i­ble piece of web­bing which is low to the ground and usu­al­ly anchored between two trees. Even though its roots are in climb­ing, it has evolved into high­lin­ing and freel­in­ing (bal­anc­ing hun­dreds of feet in the air with­out a safe­ty leash), and slack­lin­ing is also a per­fect back­yard activ­i­ty, cross train­er and fit­ness tool.

Gib­bon Slack­lines Kits make it easy for any­one to learn this sport and we’re excit­ed that today they’re mak­ing their Clymb debut.

And to pre­pare you for your next day that begins and ends out­doors – you know, a per­fect KAVU day – we’ve got a selec­tion of KAVU appar­el, bags and acces­sories for men and women.

Final­ly, to pre­pare you for just about any­thing, we’re fea­tur­ing an elite selec­tion of knives and tools from SOG, Tool Log­ic, and Victorinox.

Don’t for­get: Our lim­it­ed time $4.98 ship­ping is still avail­able and adding a Clymb T‑Shirt to your order means the entire order ships for free!

You also have till Fri­day 2/10 at mid­night EST to vote in our I Wish I Was There Land­scape Pho­to Con­test. Vote and help a lucky mem­ber win $50 to The Clymb!
