We love hearing about your big adventures. Please share your photos and stories with us by emailing email@example.com. Also let us know your favorite piece of Hyperlite Mountain Gear. Right now we’ve got friends embarking on numerous backcountry trips, including:
- David Weinstein and friends are heading to South Greenland to packraft and hike cross country later this summer. David is carrying our 4400 Southwest Pack;
- British big wall free climber, Leo Houlding, and his climbing partners are packrafting and hiking through Renland in North East Greenland, with the objective of putting up a first ascent of a massive granite formation called the Mirror Wall. They’re using our UltaMid4 and UltaMid4 Insert, the Ultralight Stake Set II, a wide variety of CF8, CF11 and Roll Top Stuff Sacks;
- Greg Hanlon just returned from a packrafting, mountaineering and thru hiking adventure through the remote Gates of The Arctic National Park and Preserve (see awesome photo gallery below; all pics courtesy of Hanlon). Greg used our 4400 Porter Pack; and
- Author and adventurer Chris Brinlee Jr., Olivia Aguilar and Gilberto Gil are thru hiking the 210-mile Sierra High Route, which runs loosely parallel to the John Muir Trail, joining it for 28 miles. Chris is using our UltaMid 2, Gilberto is using our Echo II Shelter System, and the whole team has a full assortment of CF8 Stuff Sacks.
From Brinlee’s Instagram page:
“The Sierra High Route: 200+ miles of off-trail mountain trekking with 33 mountain passes— @gilbertogil_ @ilubbgatos and I are doing it in two weeks. Sounds fun, right?
Type 2 fun, maybe.
In reality it is brutal as hell.
But we’re making it! Last night we picked up our resupply from Vermilion Valley Resort, had a hot meal – and this morning we’re heading back out into the wilderness.
One week down; one to go!”
