This summer’s Outdoor Retailer show marked the second annual American Alpine Club fundraising event and raised $2000 for the AAC.  We are proud to partner with our neighbors from Golden, CO and inspire a community of like-minded individuals to pursue their goals on the boulders, at the crags and in the high peaks all over the world.  The AAC’s recent acquisition of the Hueco Rock Ranch in Hueco Tanks, TX broadens the scope of the AAC’s work and helps to protect and manage a vital hub of the climbing world.  Mountainsmith hopes that our continued support of the AAC will aid in future efforts of this nature, offering climbing enthusiasts from a broad array of disciplines to get out and enjoy the outdoors!

We like to have fun with our partners, be creative, and bring brands into the tribe that share our values and have great quality products for our members and the climbing community. Mountainsmith is a great example of this kind of partner and we love working with them.” – Sarah Wood, Development Officer, American Alpine Club
