“It’s visionary. It’s truly on the edge of what we could call climbing,” says Arc’Teryx athlete Jesse Huey. “You can train for the Karakoram, for Alaska, but nothing can prepare you for this.” This winter, Huey and his team of elite alpine climbers will journey to the roof of the world. When darkness falls, there will be light. Happy Holidays.
