This is a public service announcement for everybody that is interested in the outdoors. Myself and a few other outdoor athletes from Ogden have joined forces and have a new website to offer how-to information; gear reviews; outdoor news; local trail, climbing, skiing, and whitewater conditions; etc. for everybody interested. This website is in conjunction with a new GEAR:30 Facebook page and, eventually (September 2012), a new brick-n-mortar specialty retail shop in Ogden, Utah, also called GEAR:30.
Though the website is up and running, we are still working on transferring content over from other sites that we have been running for the past couple years. Come visit the website, www.gearthirty.com . We hope to be a great resource for everybody that loves the mountains, whether you are an Ogden local or live on the other side of the world. We will be working hard to keep content fresh and up-to-date.
I will continue to do just what I've been doing with this blog, but the content of this blog will also be found at www.gearthirty.com along with a lot of other content from other great sources. I will continue to do gear reviews on as much good gear as I can get a hold of, whether it will be carried in the GEAR:30 store or not. Our Facebook page will also be an easy way to stay current on what is happening in the outdoor world. Visit us at Gear:30 Facebook
With all that said, I'm heading off to work at the 5th Annual Ogden Climbing Festival. Come visit GEAR:30 tonight from 5-9pm at the Gear Demo at Weber State University's Weber Rocks climbing wall. Petzl, Black Diamond, La Sportiva, Red Chili, Evolv, and many others will be there. We will be giving shirts, hats, stickers, and climbing rope, and many other prizes and giveaways have been donated by all different vendors, including Arc'teryx backpacks, shoes, harnesses, etc. Should be a super fun weekend!
