    Simone Moro and The Call of the Ice: Climbing 8,000-Meter Peaks in Winter

    “Climbing 8000-meter peaks is one of the most physically difficult and mentally challenging endeavors that humans have ever attempted. Steep terrain. Hurricane-force winds. Subzero temperatures. Blinding snowstorms. Near impossibility of rescue. Constant discomfort…then there is Simone…he climbs these peaks in winter.” --Ed Viesturs

    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.

    Don't miss it!

    Waiting on Fairweather

    Follow Mark and Janelle Smiley as they pursue climbing the Fifty Classic Climbs of North America.

    Words by Mark Smiley

    In June we headed for Mt. Fairweather (15,325'), located a mere 13 miles from the Pacific coast in SE Alaska. The Carpe Ridge is the "classic" route on its South Face. This snow, ice, and rock route ascends a little under 11,000 vertical feet from the glacier camp. It's huge! I would equate it to a remote, steeper, rockier, longer, Liberty Ridge on Rainier.
