‘Split-Boards and Sombreros’ A Spring Ascent of Mt. Shasta

On a spring ascent of Mount Shasta last week, a crew of GearJunkie editors and product testers scaled the 14,179-foot stratovolcano on a Peaks for Peace charity climb. Some serious product testing took place along the way, including a look at new packs, skis, a split-board, and a few “technical” sombreros to block the sun. Oh, and don’t miss the acro-yoga session on the summit ridge, where our YogaSlackers friends boost into a few crazy poses with their crampons still on! —Stephen Regenold
