Two Clymb employ­ees put 180 South tents to the test at the Deschutes River.

I pitched the Juniper 2 in a juniper grove entirely by acci­dent. Myself, and a buyer at The Clymb, Brett Cas­sidy, were camp­ing at the Deschutes River and we had the good for­tune to give these new 180 South tents that are exclu­sive to The Clymb a trial run.

Weird: What A Runner’s Compliment Looks Like

Runner’s com­pli­ments are downright strange.

    While it’s true that com­pli­ments come in all shapes and sizes, what a run­ner con­sid­ers a com­pli­ment may cause non-runners to pause, scratch their head, or even rear up to deliver a slap across the face.
