Sierra Designs Mt Washington Tent Test PR Video

Powered by Drupal

I remember these trips as a significant inflection point at the revitalized Sierra Designs of the early 1990s. It benefits were significant. First, they caused significant revision of most aspects of our mountaineering tents. Second, the camraderie generated on the trips (which included cooperation working under genuinely adverse conditions) was noticeable. The stories that returned were good. I remember Paul Kramer with ugly frost bite in a small area on his face where his scarf slipped away from his googles and Barry and Melissa's tale of her getting hypothermic and him forcing her to continue hiking up the mountain...a 'fun stroll' turned dangerous by the mountain's extreme conditions.

Here's the official video from trip 1.
