Alpine Rock Conditions Update
By Blake Herrington
Are you ready for Alpine Rock season? July is nearly gone and the days are already getting shorter. But with the sun still high in the sky and very low snowpacks from a dismal winter in many prime mountain areas, the time is perfect for long alpine rock climbs. Many of the nation's premier alpine venues are perfect right now, but here's a region-specific roundup to help you plan your trip...
Phantom Pack
The Phantom is a fully featured pack designed for alpine blitzes in all types of terrain and conditions. It is a universal favorite for our athletes who range in disciplines from alpine rock climbing where it excels as a lightweight on-route pack to light & fast peak baggers where it registers as about the lightest rig possible for carrying a light axe, crampons, layers and sustenance for a romp at altitude. The basic design is simple: 15 liters to carry that perfect amount of just enough, but not too much...
In honor of Justin Lichter (aka Trauma), we are giving away a Phantom pack – a product that truly embodies the light & fast minimalist ethic being driven by the world's most prolific through-hiker – and a copy of his new book, 'Trail Tested: A Thru-Hiker's Insights Into Hiking & Backpacking,' that was released in May of 2012 and contains more applicable tips and tricks than any book we have ever read on the subject. For a complete review, see our post from May 14 HERE.
Congratulations to last month's winner, Doug, who won a Laser CR harness from Cassin; our newest laminate construction big mountain harness.
