Dirtbag Hair Care

Hey Steph, love the site! As a male with shoulder length hair, how do you take care of your hair while out on multi-week climbing trips without water/shower? Mine turns into knots and dreads.

Dirtbag Retirement Planning

Hi Steph! You're seriously my favorite female climber. You're incredibly wise, I love this whole site you have up! So I have a question. What's your theory/thoughts/practices on retirement planning? I know finances is a personal question. But I'm trying to live simply in order for me to fully enjoy this life while I have it.

Hey Steph, I climbed the Salathe Wall with two buddies in September. We had a great time, aid climbed everything we possibly could - but still got totally "captained". It was my first big wall, my two buddies had done the Nose the year before.

Best Rope for a Month in the Desert

Steph, my name is Dan, and I'm a big fan of your climbing and writing. I'm currently planning a trip from my home state of Michigan to Utah for about a month starting in May. I was wondering if you had any recommendations as to what sort of rope would serve me the best for a month in the desert.
