Growing up in Salt Lake City, Utah, Nik Berry learned to love playing in the mountains at an early age. Introduced to climbing in Little Cottonwood Canyon in high school, Nik was immediately hooked. Attending university in Flagstaff, Ariz., intensified his obsession, and also allowed him to meet some great friends who showed him how to succeed and thrive in all of climbing’s disciplines. With this young group of dedicated climbers, Nik would travel every weekend to Hueco, Indian Creek, Bishop, Joes Valley or Redrocks to further hone his craft. Nik’s obsession turned his college years into a four-year climbing road trip that left him with a B.A. in business and a masters in rock climbing.
Though Nik’s skills as a climber have given him the opportunity to travel and climb at many world-renowned areas, Yosemite still has his heart. Follow Nik on Instagram at http://instagram.com/nikdingleberry.
Mmmmm toasty! On a big wall such as El Cap you are completely exposed to the elements. When the wind is blasting and you feel out of your element, the Perch Belay Parka feels like a warm hug from your sweetie. This piece does more than keep you warm, it boosts morale!
Walking the fine line between warmth and weight can be difficult with a piece of clothing and the Transition Hoody is spot on. This active hoody moves, breaths and holds up to abrasive chimneys like a BAWS! This will soon be your go-to mid-layer that you reach for every time.
