Red Bull's "The Faces of Dav" Episode 6: The Mountaineer

In the past four years, Chris Davenport has climbed every 14,000-foot peak in his home state of Colorado, setting records that will most likely stand for years to come. Now Davenport is shooting for another local milestone: climb the 100 highest peaks in the state, starting in southwest Colorado with partners Ted and Christy Mahon. For the seventh episode of Red Bull's "The Faces of Dav" web series, the trio check off three more of the 100. Every summit is another peak closer.

Patagonia's #Find_Away: Episode 4 -- The Chamonix Experience

Posted by: Sakeus Bankson / added: 12.16.2014 / Comments (0)

Chamonix, France offers arguably the most technical, high-consequence inbounds skiing in the world, all accessible via the infamous Aiguille du Midi cable car. To pick lines and objectives through the window on the way up is one thing--standing on top of them and preparing to drop is an entirely different beast. For the fourth installment of Patagonia's #Find_Away series by Bjarne Salén, “American Dave” Rosenbarger and Kye Petersen take full advantage of the Aiguille du Midi's plethora of terrain--and full-value danger--for the full Chamonix experience.

For the third installment of DPS Ski's "The Shadow Campaign," we visit Refugio Frey, nestled deep within the peaks surrounding Bariloche, Argentina and the only shelter within the brutal, wind-scoured range. It's a setting that draws adventurers of all sorts--and all species. When DPS athlete Santiago Guzman arrives at Refugio Frey to find a black dog named Conga, the two journey into the windswept landscape and find that the passion for the world's wild places is as universal as the mountains themselves.
