…Well, it’s true, and it’s official: we’re giving away a dream climbing vacation, with one lucky winner (and a friend!) heading out to climb the Grand Teton with Exum Mountain Guides. Rather than typing out all the details up here, we’ll let Brenton Reagan, Senior Exum Mountain Guide, explain it for us:
That sums it up neatly, doesn’t it? Our lucky winners will win a 4-day Grand Teton climb for two from Exum, including 2 days of climbing school and a 2-day summit attempt. The lucky pair will also win 6 nights at the American Alpine Club climber’s ranch, airfare for two to Jackson Hole (WY), a rental car and some Marmot gear. If that doesn’t sound like the trip of a lifetime, I don’t know what does. From the Exum Mountain Guides website:
The Grand Teton is one of the classic climbs in North America and it’s on every climber’s bucket list. Exum guides hundreds of climbers to the summit of the Grand Teton every summer – most of whom have never climbed prior to their first day of instruction with us. Our guides will teach you what you need to know to climb the Grand Teton with us – you only have to arrive fit and ready for the adventure.
You’ll need to submit a 2-minute video to enter, and we’ll be choosing our winner from these video entries. The video theme: why should we choose you to win the Grand Teton dream climb? Get started by following the link below, start thinking about what your video submission will look like, and we’ll send you instructions for how to submit it.
For those that want to know more about the trip, we bugged Chad Wykle — the Marmot product manager for Rock/Creek, who has done this very trip with Brenton — and he said: “We’ve been thinking about doing something like this for a while. I’ve known Brenton since the earth cooled, and he and I have been on great adventures together; he also happens to be one of the best guides on the planet! I can say for sure that the winner of this promotion will have a fantastic experience, and make memories of a life time.”
