I'd Rather Be Climbing

Ask Away   Submit   The Bar   The Face Behind The Screen   

My name is Aly, and I'm from Down East Maine, living in Northern Aroostoock at The Maine School of Science and Math in the winter, and working on Long Island in the summer. Climbing is my passion. This blog is a culmination of all dreams, travels, and problems. I'm always here for questions or to talk, so fill up my inbox. Climbing is the one thing that keeps me going, and has saved me from my self. I may not look like much, but I’ll kick your ass as long as we're going vertically.

Save Eagle Bluff - Please Share →

justclimbit:

Okay guys, please share the hell out of this. Eagles Bluff is my, and may other Maine climbers’ main source of outdoor climbing. It’s the only one within 2 hours of me, and I’ve been going here sense the beginning. I love this place, it’s home for me. It is an absolutely beautiful area, and if it’s not bought by August 1st 2014 for $150,000 we loose it. There’s more information at the link. I recognize that $150,000 is a huge sum of money, but everything helps, please at lease share this to spread the link around. If anyone has any questions about eagles bluff please feel free to message me, or shoot me an email at Aly.m.east@gmail.com Thanks!

Bluff Fest! →

Climbing competition to raise money for eagles bluff, anyone from Maine or otherwise consider going? Conveniently enough it’s the day after I get back from Florida, so I’ll be flying into Bangor just in time to get a few hours of sleep before heading over to university of Maine in Orono.
