Stride Health are an online-based insurer from the States ... so you're covered if you solo right?

OK add it to my bucket list for the next dreamy Yankee road trip. To do in under 4 hrs and 15 minutes.

And here is the Mountain Project beta

Not much health insurance is going to do for you if you fall from 200M, so those claims are pretty easy.....

Oh yeah Bear's Reach is great fun - grade 14 tops, awesome rock, laid back angle (and super juggy on the steeper bits) - so much fun!

Nope.

"Why the heck does Honnold need health insurance?"
It's kind of like having a spotter.

We partnered with Alex to keep him safe, on and off the mountain, no matter where in the world he may be. Alex’s plan of choice was the Anthem Platinum PPO Plan. Here’s when he uses it:


It’s not all about the mountain. In his own words, Alex “wants to be a grandfather” and that means making sure his “insides are alright.” The good news for Alex: with all plans, preventative care visits are 100% free!


Everybody needs a spotter. Okay, so maybe Alex is king of his free-soloing domain, but only once he carefully studies a route. Occasionally he’ll slip while roped in and “take a 40-footer.” If Alex hits his head or breaks a bone, he’s only going to have to pay 10% of the doctor bill.


International medicine is a mystery. Alex travels. A lot. And he never quite knows what’s going to happen when he’s abroad. He could catch a bad case of food poisoning, or take a digger. With the “Blue Card” attached to his plan, Alex can find a doctor anywhere in the world and he’ll never pay a dime more than he would when he’s home in California.

I remember how sick he looked on one of his trips... Was it to Africa?

Not sure how that relates to health insurance though?

"Hi, welcome to stride health"
"Hey, I have to take a digger... What do I do?"
"Ok sir, I'll transfer your call to the relevant department..."
