Caroline George Returns to Bold Lines on the Grand Jorasses
Posted on December 26, 2014

Nicole pulling on the Walker Spur

Caroline George has a résumé of big, bold climbing lines to her credit. From the six great north faces of the Alps to lines such as Beyond Good and Evil, she has ticked some heavy ice and mixed climbs in her vertical career. But a Caroline-style downshift for new motherhood kept her off the biggest, boldest lines for the past two years. That all changed when George got a call to climb the Colton-Macintyre route on the Grandes Jorasses this fall. She responded with a long, cold, and committing 1,200-meter route that ended in a WI6 diversion up a route appropriately named Extreme Dream. —LYA Editor

Gear Report: Trevor Frost Tests the Airbender in the Ethiopian Highlands
Posted on December 22, 2014

Sunset over a valley within a plateau in the Ethiopian highlands. In the distance are farms, which belong to locals who grow potatoes, carrots, and other vegetables that do well in cold weather.

We’ve followed the trips and travels of Eddie Bauer adventure travel guide and National Geographic photographer Trevor Frost from Borneo to the Outback to the Serengeti. His stories are always compelling, and the locations he lands in are the true definition of adventure travel, whether deep in the jungle or isolated in the desert. So when Frost sends us a gear report, we trust his word on how our product performs. This is his detailed take, with the images to prove it, on how our Airbender survived for five rainy weeks while he was living in a tent in the Ethiopian Highlands.

Michael Pepi Makes a Strong Case for East Coast Steelhead
Posted on December 19, 2014

Steelhead in New York State. Oh yeah! Michael Pepi lands another.

On our home turf of the Pacific Northwest, the steelhead fishing is legendary. But as Eddie Bauer Sport Shop guide and New York State resident Michael Pepi reminded us, steelheading is not just a West Coast sport. Pepi provided a rundown on one of his favorite upstate spots on the 18-mile-long Salmon River, and its tributaries, near Lake Ontario, where he has been known to land some really big fish in the catch-and-release upper and lower fly zones of this treasured river.

Late Season Pheasant in the Pacific Northwest, More than Enough
Posted on December 18, 2014

Flyfish Journal publisher Jeff Galbraith and Dr. Gonzo Yellowdog upland hunting for pheasant in Western Washington

One of the best-kept secrets of our Western Washington home turf is that just an hour or so north of Eddie Bauer headquarters, in the subdued, excited town of Bellingham, Washington, lives the family media conglomerate that created the stunning print publications of The Ski Journal; Frequency: The Snowboarder’s Journal; and The Flyfish Journal. The publisher of those titles, Jeff Galbraith, is an aficionado of all things fish and field in Western Washington, and a big fan of our Sport Shop series of hunting and shooting apparel. This is his field report on utilizing some of that Sport Shop gear during the late pheasant season in the Pacific Northwest.

The Gondola Sessions: Drew Tabke
Posted on December 12, 2014

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to catch a gondola with Eddie Bauer skier Drew Tabke? What would you ask him? Would he explain how he picked his lines on the Freeride World Tour? Would he talk about traveling to the Alps and the Andes? What would he say about the Euros? Would he share his favorite stash in Revelstoke? Would it be cool?

Posted on December 11, 2014

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to catch a gondola with Eddie Bauer guide Seth Waterfall? What would you ask him? Would he talk about skiing Denali or tell you about his all-time trip to Mount Waddington? Would he explain what it takes to earn a ski guide cert? Would he talk Everest? Would it be cool?
