"The East Face Rock Rib is a 500m long buttress of granite which runs down from the summit of Mt Taulliraju (5830m) in the Cordillera Blanca mountains. It was the main objective of our 5 week expedition to Peru. While we didn’t achieve every objective on our expedition, the first ascent on Taulliraju was an adventure of a lifetime and The North Face Adventure Grant helped us achieve our goal."
Go on. Come to the dirty side. The South East Queensland Trail Running Series is the joining of 3 existing series created by Those Guys Events. With spectacular locations, epic running, and good ol' dirty fun on offer, this is a trail series you want to thrash your shoes on.
On expedition, you really get to know your tent. The place you retreat to at night, in poor weather, for rest, for shelter, for recovery. Steve Skelton took The North Face Assault 2 tent to Peru with expedition partner, Ben Dare, to tackle some gutsy objectives in the Cordillera Blanca mountains. Here's what he learned about the rugged, single-wall expedition tent built for high altitude camps.
