A web of trails, a road, and train tracks all lead to Mount Washington‘s summit. A year-round weather observatory, seasonal cafeteria and gift shop, and a 50+ car parking lot surround the perhaps-not-so-pristine summit cairn. The mountain is located less than a day’s drive from a fifth of the US population. So why bother to ‘protect’ it now, isn’t it too far gone?

Read about Protect Mount Washington, the campaign we are fundraising for during the Summer Solstice Deck Party on Wednesday: http://www.saltpumpclimbing.com/2017/06/16/protect-mount-washington-bother/

Hello there, 2017. We foresee cycles of deep exhaustion leading to heightened performance, with plenty of hard work, reasonable risk and healing laughter.
Session 2 of SP Boot Camp gets underway Tuesday (tomorrow!). http://www.saltpumpclimbing.com/programs/boot-camp/ #tryhardlaughoften #saltpumpclimbing

Zack Sawyer is #alwayspsyched. If you want to improve your climbing, he's the kind of guy to learn from. Lucky for you, he's teaching not one but two 'trad' climbing skills series at Salt Pump this fall - the first of which gets underway this Wednesday!

Zack says "learning to utilize specialized gear, employ technical rope systems, and develop an ‘elusive’ mountain sense are all necessary components of the well-rounded trad climber."

Read about his plans for Skills Series participants on the blog: http://www.saltpumpclimbing.com/2016/10/03/got-skills-trad-climbing-zack/

Only 3 spots remain in our first indoor-outdoor Sport Climbing Skills Series, taught by Tino Fiumara. Are you a candidate for one of those spots? We asked Tino who it's designed for, what they'll take from it, and why he's psyched to be teaching it in our latest blog post:
SP: What would you say to someone who is considering joining but isn’t quite ready to pull the trigger?
TF: If you’re considering joining and aren’t quite ready to pull the trigger…Pull it :) This means that you have questions or hesitations about going sport climbing outside and this is probably for you. This is the opportunity to ask as many questions as possible, to practice risk management techniques that will add to your toolbox of skills, and to feel best prepared for your excursions into New England to clip bolts and have fun.
First of three classes in this series starts on October 6!
