Friends & Partners
Eddie Bauer First Ascent | firstascent.com
Employing one of the most successful “guide-built” programs in the industry, we’ve been a part of the Eddie Bauer/First Ascent design process from the get go. Eddie Bauer is the official supplier of our guide uniforms, as well as other gear including tents and backpacks.
Petzl | petzl.com/us
With a long history of brilliant product design, and flawless execution, we liken Petzl to the Apple computers of climbing equipment. We use Petzl ropes, ice axes, harnesses, crampons, headlamps, carabiners, and other technical gear.
Julbo | julbousa.com
What separates Julbo from the rest is their lenses. It’s all about the lens. They’ve done an incredible job of combining their rich history in mountaineering glacier glasses with modern R&D. We use Julbo sunglasses, glacier glasses, and goggles.
Backcountry Access | backcountryaccess.com
Backcountry Access revolutionized the world of avalanche rescue, and has continued that revolution to this day. BCA’s Tracker DTS was the world’s first digital avalanche transceiver. We use BCA transceivers, shovels, probes, and airbag backpacks.
