The One-Wheeled Wonder: Did you know? On October 13th (that’s today!), 2011, Mike Tierney, a ski-patroler in Aspen, Colorado, accomplished the most badass hill climb on a unicycle in history. For 11 hours, Tierney charged up Hawaii’s highest peak, Mauna Kea, (13,796 ft.). The route has been dubbed the world’s toughest hill climb. What sets Tierney’s accomplishment apart is that he did it all on a 29-inch wheel. He arrived at the summit triumphantly blasting Led Zepplin’s “A Whole Lot of Love,” and emotionally high-fived a park ranger before he hoisted the unicycle above his head in a moment that he described as Nirvana.
Walkabout: Those boots were made for walking. And that’s just what they’ll do. Which is why you need some high-top sneakers too. And maybe some sandals. Find it all at insider pricing in this collection of Men’s and Women’s footwear by Patagonia, Cushe, Native, KEEN, Sorel, and more.
Wenger: Other than chocolate, Switzerland is known for doing two things really, really well: watches and pocket knives. Wenger made them famous for both. Sometimes there’s no time to trifle with chocolate and Wenger, the official supplier of knives to the Swiss Army since 1908, has had an army to outfit. That’s pretty sweet too. Arm yourself with Wenger watches, offered today at The Clymb for member-exclusive pricing.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Something Just Jumped Up And Bit Me: Did you know? On August 11 (that’s today!), 1806, Meriwether Lewis was shot in the hip, probably by one of his own men. Lewis was hunting elk near a thickly forested riverbank on the Missouri River when he felt a sharp stinging sensation envelop his buttocks. The blow spun him around and slashed a three-inch gash in his hip. Standing behind him was the blind-in-one-eye Private Cruzatte. “Damn you,” Lewis cried. “You have shot me.” Cruzatte never confessed even though the bullet lodged in Lewis’ flesh was of the same caliber as the gun he held in his hand. The wound was not serious, and two weeks later, when the crew arrived in St. Louis two years after embarking on their epic journey to the Pacific, the excitement had overshadowed the mysterious shot.

Raspberry Monkey Brain: Did you know? We’re excited to have Skullcandy on the menu today at The Clymb but the original skull candy is of course brains. Delicious, delicious brains. But unless you’re a zombie, you have to actually prepare the dish. Remember that scene in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom where Indy and company are served chilled monkey brains in bowls made from the animals’ decapitated heads? According to Jonathan Deutsch, Ph.D., in his book, They Eat That? A cultural Encyclopedia of Weird and Exotic Food from Around the World, eating monkey brains straight from the skull like that is based purely on legend and if done in actuality could result in serious health risks. Brain requires more for preparation than a saw and a spoon. For one, it needs to be cleaned before being ingested. Deutsch recommends bathing the meat three times: first in cold water with a small amount of vinegar, second in a cold water bath and third with saltwater. The cast of Temple of Doom of course didn’t have to stomach any actual primate tissue when taking a taste. Propmasters used custard and raspberry sauce to make their dish.
