    Kristin Gates traversed the Brooks Range in Alaska, from the Yukon/Alaska Border to Kotzebue, by foot and packraft in the Spring of 2013. She was the first woman to accomplish this feat. Her 1,000+ mile traverse brought her through some of the more remote areas of the Last Frontier - no trails or people for miles, just big-time wilderness, stunning terrain and wildlife.

  • Moose's Tooth - West Ridge | Committed

    The West Ridge of the Moose's Tooth The West Ridge of the Moose's Tooth

    Success on the Moose's Tooth

    By Mark Smiley

    Janelle and I were very excited to get back into the classic climbing circuit for the fourth year in a row, after an amazing winter overseas. We had spent 90 days in Europe, where Janelle competed in several countries with the best ski mountaineering racers in the world, while I made videos of the experience. The videos can be scene here (episodes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5). In May we flew back to the States, and had 13 non-traveling days to pack and prep for our expeditions to Alaska. This was definitely not enough time, but we made it work. Most of the time I feel like a professional packer, always lugging around at least two fifty pound duffel bags and a way-to-heavy carry on. Life is so rough =)

    The first climb on our calendar for the year was the West Ridge of the Moose’s Tooth. This would be our second attempt. In 2010 we tried to climb it but got turned around largely due to Alaska sized intimidation, and horrible snow conditions.
