Lat­er, she went on to become the first woman to climb the Sev­en Summits.

BLUE RIBBON BIRTHDAY: Did you know? On this glo­ri­ous day in 1836, in the King­dom of Prus­sia, a son was born to a sim­ple farmer cou­ple. But their son was des­tined to immi­grate to Amer­i­ca and grow into any­thing but a sim­ple man. For­tune would have it that the boy would one day own a com­pa­ny that would, under his lead­er­ship, win a blue rib­bon for beer. The rib­bon would turn out to be so cher­ished that it would still be cel­e­brat­ed on the company’s label over a cen­tu­ry lat­er. (Where as far as any­one can tell, it will remain for cen­turies to come.) Today we cel­e­brate a leg­end. Hap­py birth­day, Fred­er­ick Pab­st. Camp­ing wouldn’t be the same with­out your award-win­ning contribution.

As we approach one mil­lion mem­bers, we’re look­ing back on what we set out to accom­plish and who helped us get there. Of course, there are our loy­al mem­bers who are pas­sion­ate about the out­doors, and there are our brand part­ners. These com­pa­nies not only have a long his­to­ry of mak­ing some of the best gear and appar­el on the plan­et, they sup­port ath­letes in their endeav­ors and are respon­si­ble glob­al cit­i­zens by lead­ing and sup­port­ing orga­ni­za­tions that strive to keep our envi­ron­ment safe and clean, and by imple­ment­ing sus­tain­able busi­ness practices.

The brands we fea­ture today are no excep­tion and just a small sam­pling of the many amaz­ing brands we are proud to offer our members.

More than fifty years ago, Ed Scott rev­o­lu­tion­ized ski­ing by invent­ing the first alu­minum ski pole. Today, SCOTT is at the fore­front of tech­nol­o­gy with excep­tion­al snow out­er­wear. Shop a selec­tion of SCOTT snow out­er­wear for men and women here.

Also rich in his­to­ry, Gre­go­ry designs back­packs that pro­vide a com­fort­able fit and are made from the best mate­ri­als to ensure dura­bil­i­ty. It all start­ed when Wayne Gre­go­ry was just 14 and designed his first back­pack for a Boy Scout project. Cur­rent­ly, Gre­go­ry is the only pack man­u­fac­tur­er to devel­op a waist-belt sys­tem that adjusts to fit dif­fer­ent hip angles, auto­mat­i­cal­ly improv­ing load trans­fer. Their Clymb debut fea­tures men’s and women’s sin­gle and mul­ti-day packs.

Teko set out to make the best per­for­mance socks with the least envi­ron­men­tal impact. Con­sid­er­ing they are the offi­cial sock of the Freeride World Tour 2012 and they’re con­stant­ly improv­ing upon ways to leave a small­er car­bon foot­print from design, pro­duc­tion, and ship­ment, we’d say they’ve done just that! Teko returns to The Clymb with a selec­tion of trekking, hik­ing, and ski­ing socks.

Final­ly, because we love giv­ing you guys lots of vari­ety, shop a Gog­gles & Gloves event fea­tur­ing your favorite brands.  Acces­sorize with VonZip­per, SPY, Elec­tric, Gran­doe, Kom­bi, POW, and more!

Every brand event fea­tured on The Clymb is eli­gi­ble for our lim­it­ed-time flat rate ship­ping of $4.98. If you add a The Clymb t‑shirt to your cart, your entire order will ship for free!

As we approach our one mil­lionth mem­ber, remem­ber to vis­it us on Face­book for fun give­aways and don’t for­get: we’re giv­ing the mil­lionth mem­ber $1,000 to The Clymb and if you’ve referred that mem­ber, you’ll get $1,000 too! Offi­cial rules here.
