THE ORIGINAL Mrs OH down gear from Annapurna

THE ORIGINAL Mrs OH down gear from Annapurna

Mrs Oh Eun Sun’s summit equipment ( Bering down parka + Baffin down bibs), is on display at the Black Yak & Valandre booth at ISPO winter. After her summit of Annapurna, a BIG controversial discussion started, whether she summited Kanchenjunga or not. At Valandre we have no reason to doubt the honesty of a little woman who climbed 4 8000m peaks in 2009, and have no reason not to trust the words of PRESIDENT KANG. During a very direct conversation with Reinhold Messner at this year’s Winter OR, Messner confirmed that, after having examined all available documents and using what’s left of his brain cells, that Mrs Oh DID summit Kanch!  So BRAVO Mrs Oh, you cross the line in a first place.

Jeff Lowe’s Metanoia | Outdoor Retailer Trade Show

website: http://jeffloweclimber.com/
Last day at the OR Winter show 2012, and Jeff Lowe “wheeled” up in front of the Liberty Mountain booth, well equipped with plastic water bottles on his legs. (Well in UTAH they can fill water bottles with Margaritas!). Climbing is a passion that you share with others, so Jeff is working on his film about his solo on Eiger, and this is a BIG challenge for a crippled man. His solo on Eiger represents the high light of his life, and he just wants to share it with the community. The community should pay respect by giving him a helping hand, and pass the hat around. (Wall Street bankers are invited to send a Million or two, to try to save their lost souls).

Nolan Fritts | Combi suit + the La Fayette

Nolan Fritts from Slingfile in Berkeley CA started to talk high altitude expedition at our booth at Liberty Mountain. So we opened the chat, and explained Valandre’s concept of “Gear” designed for “High altitude non ox speed climbing”. Trying several bags one by one, I cooked up Nolan for the BIG test: The combination of our high altitude Combi suit + the La Fayette. Thanks Nolan…..we had fun…..and shared the passion
