A few weeks ago @alpinetothemax had the privilege of guiding several exceptional individuals up the North Face of Longs Peak. This was a fundraiser climb for the @big_city_mountaineer; according to his sources they raised enough money for approximately 500 kids to have a wilderness experience. This is what it's all about folks, helping others explore this marvelous planet 🌎 by doing just that. We couldn't be happier to be involved with this program. Photo credit: @elexplore
