Today we’re fea­tur­ing Li-Ning pre­mi­um ath­let­ic appar­el and cel­e­brat­ing the brand’s rich his­to­ry. We’ll be tweet­ing three Li-Ning triv­ia ques­tions through­out the day and three lucky answers will win $25 in Clymb cred­it. Just tweet your answer with the hash­tag #LiNingUSA (and give them a fol­low on Twit­ter) so we can see it.

The con­test kicks off at 11am PST. In the mean­time, read about Li-Ning’s inspir­ing heritage.

To be eli­gi­ble to win, you must:

  • Fol­low Li-Ning on Twitter
  • Respond to The Clym­b’s tweet with your answer and the hash­tag #LiNingUSA

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

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 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.

Whether they’re keep­ing your cof­fee hot through­out the work­day or offer­ing up steam­ing cocoa on a camp­ing trip, Stan­ley’s all-steel, vac­u­um insu­lat­ed ther­mos have been a con­stant in the lives of those that appre­ci­ate dura­bil­i­ty. For almost a cen­tu­ry, Stan­ley has pro­duced the most reli­able ther­mos and mugs. Their vac­u­um prin­ci­ple proved to be so reli­able, that it was adapt­ed for spe­cial­ized con­tain­ers used in organ trans­plants and deep-sea and space exploration.

Stan­ley also rec­og­nizes the impor­tance of cor­po­rate social respon­si­bil­i­ty, ensur­ing that the process­es and mate­ri­als they use do right by peo­ple, com­mu­ni­ties and the environment.

We’re proud to offer mem­bers of The Clymb up to 50% off Stan­ley’s ink water bot­tles, insu­lat­ed mugs and coffee/tea infusers. This event begins today at 9am PST and is exclu­sive to our mem­bers. You can obtain a free mem­ber­ship by send­ing us a tweet or vis­it­ing our Face­book page.

And now is a great time to fol­low us on Twit­ter. We encour­age our mem­bers to dig deep­er and find out all they can about the great brands we part­ner with. Today, we’ve decid­ed to make it worth your while.

Through­out the day, we’ll tweet 3 triv­ia ques­tions about Stan­ley. The first per­son to respond with the cor­rect answer will win a $10 cred­it to The Clymb. Once you have been iden­ti­fied as the win­ner of one ques­tion, you are inel­i­gi­ble to answer lat­er ques­tions, but you can always encour­age your friends to sign up, fol­low, and play along for their own chance to win. Remem­ber, you can invite friends to join by send­ing them your unique invi­ta­tion link found under “My Accounts.”

The first tweet will be up short­ly, so stay sharp!

This one’s for the ladies.

For women that are on move, by women on the move, Lole under­stands that the active woman wants more than just to look good — she wants to feel good as well. Lole deliv­ers on this with cloth­ing that allows women to express their indi­vid­u­al­i­ty and love of the out­doors. They’re always fash­ion­able while express­ing a pas­sion for a life lived out loud.

Mem­bers of The Clymb will receive up to 60% off Lole in today’s brand event start­ing at 9am PST. The event ends on Sun­day (6/20) at 9am PST so act fast.  Mem­ber­ship is by invi­ta­tion only, but you can get yours by send­ing us a tweet or check­ing out our Face­book page.

And trust us, you want to be a mem­ber. Rumor has it we occa­sion­al­ly give away free stuff. Speak­ing of which, the win­ner of our Tweet Teva To Win Give­away is.… (insert drum roll here)

Joshua Mon­tague!

Josh has won a $100 cred­it on his Clymb account and all he had to do was tweet. That has got to be the eas­i­est hun­dred bucks he’s ever made. Congratulations!

We like to give stuff away.


Because we can.

In fact, we feel like giv­ing away $100 cred­it to one of our mem­bers. We ago­nized over the best way to do this and decid­ed that a Twit­ter con­test would be the best way. You know, that squash­es any claims of favoritism. (Even though you know you’re total­ly our favorite, right?)

If you post a tweet about our Teva event between now and Thurs­day (6/17) at 9am PST, you will be entered into a draw­ing for a $100 cred­it to The Clymb. Make sure to include us (@theclymb) in your tweet so we can see it. You have to be a mem­ber to receive the cred­it so tweet us for an invite or vis­it us on Face­book.

And if you don’t win, don’t wor­ry — there’s still away to get a cred­it towards great sav­ings. Click on My Account from The Clymb main page to locate your unique invi­ta­tion link (under My Pro­file.) Share that link on Twit­ter, Face­book or email it to your fam­i­ly and friends. When some­one who signs up via your link com­pletes their first order, you’ll receive a $10 cred­it on your account.

See? Told you we like giv­ing stuff away. Now, get to tweetin’!

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.

Wow a lot to cov­er today. First off let me announce our new brand event this week, we are part­ner­ing with Out­door Research and you can save up to 70% off a pret­ty wide selec­tion of their gear. Like always this is mem­bers only and it runs through Jan­u­ary 14th at 9am PST, if you need a mem­ber­ship you can con­tact us on Face­book, Twit­ter, MySpace, or via E‑mail at kevin.p [@] (remove the brack­ets and smoosh it all together).

Per­son­al­ly I love the Out­door Research brand events because I get to post videos with Phil Ersh­ler from Inter­na­tion­al Moun­tain Guides. Phil is super infor­ma­tive when it comes to how to lay­er and prop­er­ly use equip­ment. Here is anoth­er one of his infor­ma­tive videos:

Now onto the results of our first ever Twit­ter con­test. Here are the three peo­ple, drawn at ran­dom, to win $100 gift cards to the Clymb.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our win­ners and a mighty thank you to all that par­tic­i­pat­ed. We will be doing anoth­er con­test down the road. So if you did­n’t win you will have a chance to enact revenge and con­quer those that did at a lat­er date.
