is an internationally acclaimed climber and kayaker
who, with his wife and partner Liz, founded this outdoor
clothing company over 30 years ago. Together they tackled
ground-breaking (no pun intended!) ascents of difficult
Yosemite climbs, taught skiing and climbing, and opened
a climbing school. But the couple couldn't find the
