• Wild Fires force the closure of almost all of North Cascades National Park and beyond. We knew it would be a crazy year, but it’s just getting worse.

• In the high-stakes game of big-wall climbing, the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru may be the ultimate prize. A feature film you don’t want to miss. (Playing at OFS in Olympia in early September.)

• The American Alpine Journal 2015 is available. By the American Alpine Club.

• The Mammut Project 360 beat Google by almost a year in recording epic climbs from around the world. Outside reports.

• Don’t feel like running those long trails along? Looking for a new adventure? Aspire Adventure Running has you covered.

• A film shot straight from my heart: Alps Feels for La Sportiva, is a sensory tour through the European Alps. Perfection.

• Ueli Steck completed his project of climbing all 82 4000 meter summits in the Alps in Eighty days. Let that sink in.
