REI Presents: Follow Through

People have opinions about skier Caroline Gleich: Inspirational. Gumby. Social media star. Role model. Model masquerading as a mountaineer. At sixteen, she stumbled upon a copy of the cult classic guidebook The Chuting Gallery. Irreverent and wonderfully arbitrary, the guidebook lays out a set of 90 ski mountaineering lines across Utah’s Wasatch Mountains. They were difficult and dangerous. When she first said out loud she wanted to ski them, she was met with laughter. “Maybe it was because I was five feet tall, or I was a little blonde girl, but I remember that clearly — and it didn’t feel good” says Gleich. After a decade building her skills, Gleich set out to complete her vision and become the skier she dreamt of being. “Follow Through” is a story of loss, belonging and desire for respect. In this age of hyperconnectivity, which voices do we choose to hear and which do we ignore?

Cerro Torre - Mountaineering in Patagonia

Making-of the movie Ritmo Latino :
The story of two alpinists, Bruno Sourzac and Ramiro Calvo, bewitched by the same mountain: Cerro Torre. In the heart of Patagonia, this granite monolith rejects many suitors, even the most gifted ones.
Ramiro has produced a funny and touching film of the Franco-Argentinean team making the ascent. While not a tango, the music driving the climbers is a key element in the story. Ramiro talks about how and why he made the film, underlining values dear to Argentineans: friendship, laughter and passion...

A Mountaineer Who Dares Greatly: Dave Hahn

Into the Arena - Dave Hahn is a mountaineer with a serious resume. One of his many accomplishment; more summits of Mount Everest than any non-Sherpa climber with 15. Teddy Roosevelt said, It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.” - Rainier Films -

Why are ice climbing axes and mountaineering axes different (2019)? | Ice Climbing Vlog Ep. 6

Choosing the right ice climbing axe or mountaineering axe for you can be really hard!

In this alpine climbing vlog episode I will touch the differences between the two major types of ice axes - the mountaineering axe and the technical ice climbing axe. And besides that, Petzl has released the Petzl Quark 2018 version, which now contains some pretty cool features making it a contender for the best allround ice axe - at least in my opinion

The Petzl Quark 2018 is now a standard item in my alpine climbing kit.

There are several key differences between a mountaineering axe and an ice climbing axe such as length of the shaft, the aggressiveness or curve of the shaft, the handle of the ice axe, and the teeth on the pick. Besides that the mountaineering ice axe comes in different sizes that should suit you, which the ice climbing axe does not - watch this alpine climbing vlog episode and find out how to choose the best size.

In the vlog you can see the:

- Grivel Tech Machine technical ice climbing axe
- Petzl Summit Evo mountaineering axe
- and the Petzl Quark 2018 allround mountaineering and ice climbing axe

Other brands have made ice axes like the Petzl Quark such as Grivel North Machine, Black Diamond Viper or the Edelrid Riot. However the Petzl Quark 2018 adds some nifty features such as adjustable finger rests and a foldable handrest.

Before you watch the alpine climbing vlog episode on the differences between the ice climbing axe and the mountaineering ice axe, here is a short disclamer; I am not associated with any or the brands mentioned, nor have I received any product from neither Petzl or Grivel. What I tell in the vlog is solely based on my own experiences and personal views! Yup, now go ahead watching i vlog!

The Best Training For Mountaineering - Hills with Additional Weights [E2]

Hills with Weights [E2]. In this video I present how I train with weights on hills or stairs in order to prepare myself for mountaineering. 7-13 kg, 200-250 m of ascent as more experienced and 50-100 m as a beginner.Three times a week. Aim for heart rate around 140-160 BPM. I recommend you to only carry additional weight if you consider yourself having a base fitness.
The Best Training For Mountaineering is a series of videos that I hope will inspire you to take your mountaineering to the next height. Best is subjective but this is what I have learnt from many people over the last 8 years as a mountaineer.
