    Backcountry Bomb

    Few things sketch out backcountry skiers and mountaineers more than a massive hanging lip of ice and snow and sastrugi. With an engineering degree and a lifetime of amateur tinkering under his belt, Joe Wiltzen decided to come up with a solution for cutting down cornices.

    It would need a cable that was thin yet strong enough to slice through everything. And, it needed bomber handles. Once finished, Joe kept getting compliments when he whipped out his pipe-bomb-looking invention to shed a sketchy cornice.

    That was when he realized he might have more than just a garage-built solution; he might have found a way to keep out of that cubicle forever. Since then, Joe has become the model of corporate entrepreneurship from his Backcountry Bomb offices in a tipi in southwestern Montana.
