Will Calton along with fellow Ogden resident and friend, Tom Burton, summited Everest in 2012. Will continues to closely follow the exploits of the world's tallest mountain, the deaths, summits, success stories, and drama. This year is extraordinarily significant as an avalanche swept through the Icefall killing 13 Sherpa men with three more missing. This tragic event may in effect shut the mountain down as many of the Sherpa were part of the high altitude team who set ropes for all those who follow.  
Will's personal experience on the mountain is quite remarkable and to have him available to contribute his thoughts on the mountains recent events is a privilege. Thanks Will! And, we would like to send our prayers and thoughts to those who lost loved ones in the avalanche.  
Consider purchasing a print for $100 to benefit the families of Sherpa who died. Visit http://sherpafund.bigcartel.com/ Aaron Huey Purchase prints like "The Return" from Aaron Huey to benefit the Sherpa who died. Visit: http://sherpafund.bigcartel.com/

Mike Henderson - Ogden Climbing Festival

April 7th, 2014

Mike Henderson Touring

  

Most of the winter Mike Henderson charged the backcountry guiding Dawn Patrol for the Weber State Outdoor Program. Now that spring has sprung, well, 'Hendo' is still skiing, but also helping organize this year's 7th Annual Ogden Climbing Festival. Below is our interview with Mike about #OCF7, but first the deets: 

GEAR:30 kicks off the Fest on Thursday, April 10th at 7pm, with a slideshow presentation by adventure photographer Nathan Smith. Check out Nathan's images at Pull Photography.

This year's Fest will introduce an Invitation Only Intercollegiate Boulder Comp at Friday night's Weber Rocks demo. Young Subaru donated a $250 purse for the winning climbers. Friday's demo will also be a great night for families and climbers to come test gear, jump on a rope for the first time, and meet Keynote Speaker, climber and trainer, Obe Carrion. 

Saturday is the big Fest day! The action kicks off at 10am in the Ogden Boulder Field with a Red Point Boulder Comp! At noon is lunch sponsored by Red Bull. Clinics for the community begin at 1pm. From upping your climbing game with Obe Carrion's "Next Level" clinic, to Climbing Yoga, a Striders Running Trail Run, Rock Rescue, and Children's Bouldering, there really is something for everyone at Saturday's boulder field events. 
Amer Sports will host Obe Carrion's Keynote Presentation at 6:30pm. We'll announce winners of the boulder comps, and give away ridiculous amounts of swag!

Obe Carrion

The weekend wraps with an after party at GEAR:30, catered by Roosters. Reel Rock 8 will be playing, along with music, chair bouldering, and socializing.
