A day focused on the stoke, learning and encouragement of female climbers with partners Backcountry and Arcteryx. Once at the Gunks in New Paltz, NY the ladies met their guides from EMS Patty and Carolyn and set off on an amazing day at the crag learning basics of trad, tope roping, and the history of the women in the Gunks. Climbing was followed up by yoga and light snacks at the Arcteryx Store SOHO.
TURN ON EXPLORER MODE
As a part of Earth Day, The North Face celebrated the week of April 15th through April 22nd by encouraging explorers to set aside technology and the comfort of the known to “turn on explorer mode”. Prior to the Urban Photography class offered by The North Face at their 5th Ave store and taught by myself, images were captured in a shoot at Fort Tryon and Rockaway Beach, then printed and displayed within the store to illustrate New York City’s wide range of spectacular natural elements.
