After more than a decade of traveling, photographing, and guiding in the world’s most remote mountain ranges, Eddie Bauer guide David Morton came home to the Pickets—a backyard range he’d never fully experienced deep in Washington’s North Cascades. The mission was to summit Mt. Fury in the isolated Northern Pickets with Jake Norton. The result was a new appreciation for the ranges that lie just beyond his doorstep.

Jake Norton Traces a Family Climbing Lineage on Mt. Fury
Posted on February 3, 2015

With Stargazers perched in the splendor of the Northern Pickets, Jake Norton finishes his morning fueling session.

Eddie Bauer guide, photographer and filmmaker Jake Norton has climbed Everest, attempted the West Ridge, and journeyed to remote mountain ranges around the globe to summit the tallest peaks in the world and promote the cause of clean water through his Challenge 21 effort. But none of it fully prepared him for what he encountered in the Northern Picket Range of Washington’s North Cascades during a mission to summit Mt. Fury with Eddie Bauer guide David Morton. Norton picked the objective, since his great-uncle Roe Duke Watson claimed the first ascent of West Fury in 1958. This is Jake’s report on what they found when they tackled the same climb.

Melissa Arnot Mountain Training Video
Posted on January 28, 2015

Melissa Arnot has summited the world’s tallest peak more times than any Western woman. But for her it’s not just about summit day, it’s about all the work and all the miles she puts in to get strong for the climb. “Mountain training is really the most critical aspect of climbing for me, it’s all of the preparation you do before you even ever try to summit any peak,” says Arnot. “I try to be 100 percent more prepared than I think I’m ever going to need physically and technically, that way I know that on my summit day I can enjoy things and I’ve put all the training away before I even get there.”
