180 South Tents – A Clymb Exclusive

Two Clymb employ­ees put 180 South tents to the test at the Deschutes River.

I pitched the Juniper 2 in a juniper grove entirely by acci­dent. Myself, and a buyer at The Clymb, Brett Cas­sidy, were camp­ing at the Deschutes River and we had the good for­tune to give these new 180 South tents that are exclu­sive to The Clymb a trial run. The world-famous salmonfly hatch was on, and a cur­sory glance at the river­bank grass revealed these thumb-sized bugs in abun­dance. I was anx­ious to wet my line, so I jumped out of

The Story Behind Warrior Hike’s “Walk Off The War” and Interview with Founder Sean Gobin

How War­rior Hike’s “Walk Off The War” pro­gram helps vets with thru-hikes.

In the dis­tant past, after a gru­el­ing war cam­paign, mil­i­tary units would have a long jour­ney on foot to get back home. This allowed time to wind down and process what they had just been through. In this day and age, mil­i­tary units can be relieved of duty and back home in days if not hours, not really afford­ing much time to decom­press. That’s where Sean Gobin and his War­rior Hike “Walk Off The War” pro­gram comes in. A Lit­tle His­torySean Gobin

7 Things to Know About the Newest National Monument

Hol­i­day cock­tail con­ver­sa­tion facts: The San Gabriel Moun­tains, our newest National Monument.

Say hello to the San Gabriel Moun­tains National Mon­u­ment, the lat­est to join the list of 110 national mon­u­ments in the United States. In Octo­ber, after a decade of pub­lic sup­port and encour­age­ment, Pres­i­dent Obama declared the San Gabriel Moun­tains as a national mon­u­ment. He did so under Antiq­ui­ties Act, which allowed him to use his exec­u­tive pow­ers to uni­lat­er­ally make the dec­la­ra­tion (as 15 pres­i­dents have done before him for other sites across the U.S.). This new des­ig­na­tion means that California’s
