New Directions for Mountains and Water

As I mentioned before, I transferred this blog to its own domain, mountainsandwater.com. In the coming weeks and months I will be creating more original content, including more opinion essays on important topics as well as interviews with individuals I think are important in the climbing community. Recently I have been hard pressed to find the time to produce the kind of writing and commentary I would like to see on this blog. In the near future I will be focusing on the quality of writing and not so much on climbing news except where it's truly exceptional. I feel it is time to begin transforming this space from an opportunity for occasional ramblings to a more serious forum for thinking about the meaning of moving in the vertical environment. As always I welcome your suggestions and comments.

sounds exciting, but don't stray too far. i tend to like the mix you have now. 1 part "peter goes climbing" and 1 part "peter makes climbing commentary".

at any rate, i'll be available for an interview all spring :)

Peter - thanks for the blog of the week link (and sorry if this is a duplicate comment)... I look forward to reading more of yours!

P-
I'm psyched, you sound motivated. I've always liked the fact that your one of a handful of the climbers I know that truly enjoys taking a deeper look into the more esoteric side of climbing. I'm interested to see what you've got planned. cheers, BA

Sounds great Peter. Just keep writing and I'm sure whatever direction you choose will still make for a must-read blog.
