It’s T-minus 88 days until our first Alaska mountaineering course flies onto the Kahiltna Glacier. Have you figured out your insulated mitten situation yet? If your digits run cold or want a glove that you can take on Denali, consider OR Alti Mitts. They are built for 8,000-meter peaks and Arctic expeditions. If Denali isn’t in your future, Black Diamond Mercury Mitts are an excellent choice for your Alaska course, Rainier climb, or other lower elevation objective. Hand-knit mittens won’t work for your course, but are very stylish and would be totally appropriate for après climb beers at Talkeetna’s legendary Fairview Inn.
