The Festy Experience, in just its second year, has already become a music festival...

Fourteen 14ers – Sponsors

When I look in my sock drawer I see the last decade of expeditions in Smartwool socks. Alaska, Europe, Nepal, Tibet and Pakistan – they are all the super thick mountaineering style wool in ascending order of ‘worn-out-ness’.  I’m reminded of the relationships that have developed over that time – professional and personal.  Everything lined [...]

Fourteen 14ers – Mt Antero 14,269′

This trip requires a bit more portability since we will not be skiing or climbing from a base camp. Tara and Herb took a moment from their consuming desert lifestyle to demonstrate the rig. First [...]
