There were many amazing ascents in 2011; it’s a wonder Outside Magazine managed to narrow them down to just ten. But take on that unenviable task they did, and with much success managed to pick ten stories that encapsulate the discipline and spirit of climbing. From a nine-year-old girl who tore though Hueco Tanks, Texas to Adam Ondra whose most outstanding sends last year included two V16s… in two months.
We want you to be rockready for 2012 which is why we’re featuring climbing gear from brands like Evolv, Five Ten, Pusher, and more, plus summit tools like navigational watches, pedometers, and compasses from HIGHGEAR.
North Pole. South Pole. Mt. Everest in One Year. Extreme adventure seekers are surely wired differently than most. See how HIGHGEAR’s Eric Larsen plans to save the poles:
