"The north face of Cima Grande requires total concentration and doesn't give in easily, to no one and for no reason. To climb a route like this everything must be absolutely perfect, and that's why we're both overjoyed with our ascent." › Read More

Product Testing And The Design Process: With Lusti And Sarah Wallace (Photos by Christina Lusti and Austin Ross)

Every day that I had time after class I would drive my truck up to the local bouldering spot, Flagstaff Mountain, and desperately climb V5 until my skin was wrecked. After one of these bouldering sessions, a friend showed me the climbing film, ‘Auto Route’, and totally in awe, I watched it on repeat. The basic story is that three American boys were touring Europe and crushing. For some reason the footage of Dave Graham climbing ‘Speed’ left a special impression on me..." › Read More
