    Mikey Schaefer and FORCE: A Film by Duct Tape Then Beer

    Join us at Feathered Friends September 16th, 2014 for a screening of Force, a film by Patagonia climber and photographer Mikey Schaefer and Fitz Cahall of Duct Tape Then Beer.

    Since he was a young climber, Patagonia ambassador and photographer Mikey Schaefer has been simultaneously drawn and repelled by the ferocity of the world’s greatest mountains, and in the last decade he’s made an annual pilgrimage to El Chaltén, Argentina, to ferret out new routes. The photos he has taken during his time there have propelled him into a career in photography. Now, his images and film footage capture the imagination of today’s young climbers who aspire to climb in the windswept wilderness of Patagonia.

    Sit back, enjoy the film and afterwards wander a photo gallery of Mikey’s work. Event attendees may order prints, with all proceeds benefiting the Access Fund.

  • Mt Logan's Hummingbird Ridge - Sept 11

    Back from a safe climb on Mt Logan's Hummingbird Ridge, Mark Smiley will be presenting on the expedition of the classic route, as well as other classic climbs done in 2014. Join us 11th of the September! Back from a safe climb on Mt Logan's Hummingbird Ridge, Mark Smiley will be presenting on the expedition of the classic route, as well as other classic climbs done in 2014. Join us 11th of the September!

    Hummingbird Ridge

    It sounds innocuous enough: Hummingbird Ridge. Its one ascent, however, would suggest otherwise. As Allen Steck was a member of the successful (and very bold) 1967 climb, he included the ridge in the book Fifty Classic Climbs of North America. With very few attempts, and more deaths than summits, it seems a bit of a cruel joke 35 years after publication.

    In mid-2014, the team of Mark & Janelle Smiley, Jed Porter, and Reiner Thoni flew in from Silver City in the Yukon Territory to a less-than-ideal Seward Glacier, and got a taste of the infamous ridge, double cornices and all. See what this unbelievable expedition was all about with stellar photos and stories.

    As action packed as late 2013 and 2014 have been, Mark will also highlight the Palisades Traverse in the High Sierra, and give a sneak peek at their excellent videos that will be coming out this fall.

    PCT Express with Heather "Anish" Anderson

    The Pacific Crest Trail is an ambitious undertaking for any through-hiker. With over 2660 miles of varied terrain from Mexico to Canada, the PCT offers plenty of physical and mental challenges. In 2013, Heather "Anish" Anderson not only completed the Pacific Crest Trail unsupported, a tremendous feat in itself, but did so by shattering the record time, finishing the entire trail in 60 days, 17 hours and 12 minutes!

    Join us at Feathered Friends June 12, 2014 at 7pm as Heather presents the challenges of pursuing such a difficult undertaking, and what it took to finish the Pacific Crest Trail, self-supported, in record time. Whether you are planning a full through-hike of your own on one of America's Triple Crown routes, or just enjoy the exceptional outdoor opportunities in Washington, this promises to be an insightful and exciting evening.

    You know how it goes. Ounces turn to pounds, and those pounds are what you have to carry when you’re hiking, backpacking, or climbing. We are constantly looking to shave the weight: balancing need and want, safety and convenience. While we are big proponents of lightening the load, there are some items, luxuries if you will, that we like to have with us if possible.
