Tin Shed: Filled to the Rafters with Stories and Videos

Patagonia  /  Aug 28, 2008  /  2 Min Read  /  Activism


I hinted at a treat for you last week and now it’s live. Today Patagonia launched the Tin Shed, a multimedia mini-site (à la the Footprint Chronicles) that’s loaded with dispatches from our friends and ambassadors traveling the wilder world — in high-quality video, audio and the written word.

Head over to the Tin Shed at, or hit the jump for a glimpse at what’s inside.

With thanks to everyone involved, especially Betsy, Bill, Stuart, Alyssa, Mr. Tim, Kristo and the Royal Order

Some of what you’ll find inside the Tin Shed:

K7 West (video) – Experience the first ascent of K7 West in Pakistan’s Charakusa Valley with Steve House, Vince Anderson and Marko Prezelj.
