‘110 Outdoor Ambassadors’ Project

The ‘110 Outdoor Ambassadors’ site is now live!

Can you name this pioneering climber? He forged hundreds of first ascents and changed the way we view alpine climbing and mountaineering gear today.

From adventurers to iconoclasts, a project to launch this month on GearJunkie will look at the past 110 years to highlight 110 people in the outdoors who have made a difference.

This post is simply a teaser to the full production, which will launch next week. In the mean time, we’re encouraging readers to email our editor with ideas on any lesser known or “must include” individuals for our 110 Outdoor Ambassadors list.

Stay tuned as we head toward launch of the immersive microsite. The climber pictured here, Jeff Lowe, is one of the 110 heroes who will soon be featured among 109 additional athletes, artists, conservationists, and personalities of the present and of decades past.

—Thanks to Wigwam, a made-in-the-USA socks brand, for sponsoring our 110 project in sync with its 110th anniversary. The full microsite and experience will launch next week!
