“It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.”

— Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist


In early July, I got the rad opportunity to climb Mount Rainier with Peter Whittaker. Peter is well known for his mountaineering and ski mountaineering feats, which have taken him to all corners of the globe. But did you know that he's also a serial entrepreneur? He currently has six businesses and counting. Among the quiver is Bight Gear, a line of AWESOME technical apparel designed by mountain guides (and sold by Garage Grown Gear!). 

Bight Gear pieces have quickly become some of my favorite clothing items for both frontcountry and backcountry. My co-founder, Lloyd Vogel, wholeheartedly agrees. If you want the full backstory on Bight Gear, be sure to check out this article! Now onto the photos ...
