Whether your climbing leads you to conquer alpine summits, pushing your skills to new heights, or you prefer to chalk up at the gym and crag where new routes challenge and thrill, it’s only appropriate that your packs rise to the occasion. From our guide-tested and summit-proven Mutant Series to the crux-busting Zealot Series, we’ve perfected the gear to compliment your every move
Alpine climbing is about partnership, tenacity and preparation—doing everything possible to design outcomes beyond your control. We’ve tirelessly worked with our local guides and global athletes to make the new Mutant Series the best fitting and functioning pack out there, from the Ouray Ice Park to the summit of K2. Sure, a climbing pack is a climbing pack, but the Mutant is a made for alpinism.
Nearly a pound lighter than the Exos 58 and featuring a more fine-tuned adjustment system, the 55-liter Exos Pro is the most comfortable ultralight thru-hike backpack in its weight class. A highly-ventilated AirSpeed™ backpanel supports light loads with ease while maintaining maximum airflow across your back, making it an ideal pack for your most long-distance endeavors on the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail and beyond.
“Marcus Garcia might be the best climber you’ve never heard of.” — Rock and Ice Magazine, issue 238. Marcus is an all-around climber with over 25 year of experience, and has established over 200 new routes, including everything from traditional, sport, and mixed climbing. However, his biggest accomplishment and legacy is not how hard he can push himself, but what he passes on to the next generation of climbers as a coach and mentor. As lead coach for youth Team USA Ice Climbing, Marcus is helping develop the next generation of Olympic Caliber athletes. When Marcus is not out teaching climbing clinics, he can be found in Durango, Co at his climbing gym. Marcus’s clinics are loved by all.
