Looking through a climbing gear historians heart. I created this page in dedication to the Patagonia clothing company’s continual level of excellence. Not just the amazing clothing, but for all of the amazing art that went into the catalogs, banners, advertisements, photography, and just a deep love and respect for this historical company. My contribution to Patagonia is through my passion of preserving climbing history. I write this to say that every time I have visited Patagonia corporate, I was delighted to see how happy everybody was in their professions within. I was not judging the company but it was “that noticeable” where I was a total stranger and overall everybody I met welcomed me with open arms. Val and Terri with the Patagonia Archives totally rock!!! Big THANKS and hugs once again for inviting me into your amazing world!!!
