Zach and Micha met in Alaska, formed a bond whilst adventuring in the great frontier, climbing partners for life and very happy about it.
Noel is a pro; he works as a guide & educator for NOLS. His knowledge of climbing and the outdoors is impressive. He’s originally from Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories, Canada.

Micah, from the San Francisco Bay Area, enjoys one of camping’s greatest features – hot coffee. He has worked in coffee professionally, and his passion for the brew and climbing is contagious.
Trevor smiles the biggest smile, as friendly as they come. He’s awkward in front of the camera, so this shot is a gem.
Bradley met us there, a friend of Dan’s. He’s originally from CLE and lives in Salt Lake City now. We were happy to have several friends link their travel plans with ours.

Reese doesn’t know I took this photo of him.
