Guide: Washington, Alaska, International

Connor grew up in around the ocean and rocks of Southern California. After a few years of rock climbing he was introduced to the mountains of the Sierra Nevada. His love for the mountains was realized following a winter ascent of Mt. Whitney. He found that challenging his physical and mental boundaries made him feel alive and at home atop these snow covered peaks. Connor then left the warmth of Southern California and moved to Colorado where he spent his time ice and mixed climbing. Through climbing Connor has found happiness and contentment, his focus is sharing this experience with others.

    Gear Review: Fozzils Bowls

    By Mike Hawkins It has been a long day – one of the most demanding climbing days you have ever experienced. Your legs are wrecked. Your back is sore and you have small bruises on your hips from your hipbelt. You have sunscreen caked into every nook and cranny, but even that didn’t keep you […]

    Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]

Cold-related injuries vary greatly […]
