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.

Dynam­ic Duo: Did you know? On August 3 (that’s today!), 1811, broth­ers Johann Rudolf and Hierony­mus Mey­er returned from the moun­tains claim­ing to have con­quered Jungfrau, one of the most icon­ic peaks in the Swiss Alps. Not only would this have been the first ascent of the moun­tain but also the first ascent of any moun­tain in Switzer­land over 4,000 meters. It was an extra­or­di­nary feat that many peo­ple doubt­ed since from where they stood on the val­ley floor, they could not see the flag the broth­ers hoist­ed at the sum­mit. To clear his father’s and uncle’s names, Got­tlieb Mey­er, togeth­er with Joseph Bor­tis and Alois Volk­er, climbed the moun­tain yet again in 1812. Jungfrau did not see anoth­er ascent for six­teen years, qui­et­ing any dis­be­lief about the fam­i­ly’s moun­taineer­ing prowess.

Den­im Dreams: Did you know? Some men just want to see the world burn. Oth­ers want to shroud it in den­im. On May 20 (that’s today!), 1873, Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis received the patent for blue jeans. With daisy dukes and cut­off vests still a long way off, the patent focused sim­ply on Davis’s method of attach­ing met­al riv­ets to pock­et cor­ners and oth­er points of strain, which increased the strength of the garments.

For some, ski­ing is a hob­by. For oth­ers it’s a way of life.  I was for­tu­nate enough to grow up in places known for hav­ing a land­scape filled with high moun­tain peaks, easy acces­si­bil­i­ty to out­door recre­ation, and win­ters that made out­siders for­get about any pre­vi­ous notions of what they defined as “pow­der.” Self-pro­claimed or not, I found myself sur­round­ed by “ski-bums” – a lot of them.  The fun­ny thing about ski-bums is that for the most part those who don’t look at ski­ing as a way of life and instead a hob­by, aren’t usu­al­ly privy to the pas­sion behind these fear­less snow enthu­si­asts. Their lifestyle seems for­eign, maybe a bit lazy and fever­ish­ly unam­bi­tious. What peo­ple don’t real­ize how­ev­er is that these “ski-bums” have pas­sion like no oth­er. They are will­ing to sac­ri­fice com­forts of life to do some­thing they love. They choose to do some­thing that excites them and makes them hap­py every sin­gle day of their lives despite hav­ing the option to take the path of least resis­tance.  In my years liv­ing in ski com­mu­ni­ties, there is one thing that always amazes me and nev­er sur­pris­es me: pas­sion­ate skiers/riders always find a way to make it work in every­thing they do. They turn adven­tures into a lifestyle and pas­sion into profits.

Fly­Low did exact­ly that.  The small com­pa­ny was born from the cre­ative minds of two Jack­son Hole “ski-bums” and in a few short years, Fly­Low has made a name for itself in a sea of out­door gear and appar­el.  They call co-founder Dan Abrams a soul ski­er and for good rea­son.  The Fly­Low sto­ry is one of our favorite human-pow­ered adven­tures and we’re excit­ed to debut them on The Clymb today. Shop men’s and wom­en’s freeride ski appar­el here.

Then, Walk This Way with boots, trail run­ners, and more for men, women and chil­dren, from some of your favorite footwear brands like Cha­co, Teva, KEEN, VIVOBAREFOOT, and more!

One of the more inter­est­ing debates among run­ners is over the ben­e­fits of bare­foot run­ning. Is min­i­mal­ist run­ning bet­ter than tra­di­tion­al? Though recent stud­ies have shown run­ners who habit­u­al­ly rear­foot strike have sig­nif­i­cant­ly high­er rates of repet­i­tive stress injury than those who most­ly fore­foot strike, the key is remem­ber­ing that run­ning is a skill that requires prop­er training.

Run­ning tech­nique and move­ment spe­cial­ist Lee Sax­by demon­strates the cor­rect pos­ture in bare­foot running:

We’d love to hear your thoughts on bare­foot run­ning. After you shop our exclu­sive VIVOBAREFOOT event today, stop by Face­book and tell us about your bare­foot run­ning experience.
