Layering: Staying Comfortable in the Mountains

Check out this blog post I recently wrote for the American Alpine Institute. Many of my technical thoughts on fabrics and layering strategies for alpine climbing. I also listed a few of my kits I use regularly in different locations.

My friend Conor and I demonstrating how NOT to layer while hunting for early season ice.

    1. Thanks Jeff! Sounds like you'll be on the trip just before me. But I'll probably see you coming down as we're going up! Hope you're getting after it in the Sierra's this winter!
