Experienced guides and sponsors are two ingredients to successful climbs.
Guides. They're the key to our education and safety. Get a bad one and you'll never climb again. Or maybe just lose a digit.
Ours use great euphemisms like "move with purpose now, we're in a high consequence area." Some can even rappel off a Snickers bar buried in the snow so that they don't have to leave an $80 ice screw behind.
So, what can you really expect from a guide? The professionals at Rare Earth Adventures are the people who handle all the nitty-gritty details of an adventure so that you can focus more on the landscapes and experiences (and less on fixing the stove.) They're also highly trained to keep you safe and respond to emergencies.
And… they take you to the best local breweries, get you off the beaten track, and share some hair-raising stories with you when you're windbound in a tent below the summit.
B'more Organic, makers of organic protein smoothies donates 1% of sales to Jodi's Climb for Hope. The inspiration for the company actually originated after a fundraising expedition climb in Iceland in 2010. Co-Founders Andrew and Jennifer Buerger fell in love with the Icelandic style yogurt called skyr (pronounced skeer) and it's health benefits of high protein and low sugar. They started making smoothies in their kitchen with simple organic ingredients with no added sugar, delivering to Earth Treks climbing gym in Baltimore. It was all downhill from there and now B'more Organic is sold in nearly 3,500 doors across the country. Every bottle makes a difference.
