Marlene on Trad

By Robbie Phillips   |   Oct 18, 2016 October 18, 2016

One of my earliest outdoor climbing experiences was at the crags around the quaint countryside village of Dunkeld. An escarpment of Schist can be seen escaping from the deep forest high on the hill just beyond the village. It was here that I would spend many a day for ten years. Read More

The Storm

By Anne Gilbert Chase   |   Oct 12, 2016 October 12, 2016

As I swung my tools into the unconsolidated snowy headwall and tried to catch something that would hold my weight, I looked down and saw Jason and Caro huddled together at a hanging belay. In the gathering dark, they were trying to avoid the constant barrage of snow and ice… Read More

Fair Trade: The First Step

By Rose Marcario   |   Oct 10, 2016 October 10, 2016

You may be familiar with the “Fair Trade Certified” symbol and its assurance that some of the money spent on a bag of coffee or bar of chocolate goes directly to its producers and stays in their community. Patagonia, in partnership with Fair Trade USA, now makes clothes… Read More

Reflecting on the Future

By Chris Malloy   |   Oct 5, 2016 October 5, 2016

My three kids are young, too young for me to wax politics with. Nothing worse than an 8-year-old reciting slogans they don’t understand. For now, I’m getting them in the hills, letting them feel the cold and the growl in their bellies after a long day out. I’m doing my best… Read More

The Worst Idea

By Luke Nelson   |   Sep 20, 2016 September 20, 2016

“You don’t have to be crazy,” Ty likes to say, “but it helps.” I’ve stopped counting how many times over the years these words have described our harebrained outings. Right then, I was trying to focus on surviving the current one. Anything that actually resembled running had stopped hours ago. Read More

The Magic of Yosemite National Park

By Timmy O’Neill   |   Sep 16, 2016 September 16, 2016

The national park system may not have saved my life but it definitely allowed me to truly discover and continually define it. Following an abysmal 13th grade at an entry level university and an equally lamentable year employed in one of the most dangerous professions, I bolted west to manifest… Read More

By Vincent Stanley   |   Sep 14, 2016 September 14, 2016

I’d like to introduce Patagonia’s friends and customers to the work of GreenWave, if you don’t already know it. GreenWave and its 3D ocean farming program have received much attention lately from the national press, including The New Yorker, CNN and… Read More
