You’re invited.

We take motivated individuals, band them together, and traverses awe-inspiring terrain while accomplishing something big. Our small group guided treks across the Sierra to Mt. Whitney, through the Grand Canyon and Lost Coast, and to pioneering destinations like Hell For Sure, Mt. Goddard and Tehipite Valley are team oriented and easy to join. While our treks can be intense, no prior backpacking experience is required. Just bring your mental toughness, positive attitude, and be ready for an experience that can inspire for a lifetime.
