This is very interesting. A big move with the Olympics being overtly cited as the impetus.

Would love to see do something like this as well. Seems like a great idea for sport governing bodies all around.

How hard are these climbers working at the World Championships? Well, the commentators just had to note to viewers that the competitors aren't actually allowed to bleed on the handholds.

Lots of clock weirdness going on right now at the women's bouldering finals.

This is a campaign that is dear to my heart. Growing up in Minnesota and having spent time in the Boundary Waters, I know it is an incredible and pristine wilderness we need to fight to protect. Please consider donating to this important cause.

If you're in the mood for a travel memoir, I wrote a book, "Island Solitaire," about my time living on Jeju Island in South Korea...a wonderfully complex and breathtaking little place.

Another takeaway from the World Cup at Arco is what an incredible season Slovenia's Janja Garnbret is having--again. She won six lead World Cup events last year...and is on pace to repeat that again this year. Phenomenal.

Team USA showed some nice depth at last weekend's World Cup in Arco, Italy, with Claire Buhrfeind doing great in the women's Lead portion, Sean Bailey barely missing out on the Finals for men's lead, and Piper Kelly cruising in Speed. Here's the recap I wrote for

I'm a little surprised that putting beats behind Poffo's poetry is yet to become a thing on the Internet. Could easily see it being a viral trend.

Stefano Ghisolfi read the route flawlessly. His transitions from rests to power moves were smooth, and he never really looked out of sorts in the slightest.
