Salewa and Jackson Hole Mountain Guides Close Out the Teton Climbing Season.

Boulder Colorado, September 2012 – On Saturday September 15th Salewa North America and Jackson Hole Mountain Guides climbed above the smoky valley of Grand Teton National Park with a diverse party of journalist, retailers and guides.

Wearing Salewa shoes the entire climb, all five parties split at the lower saddle on the Grand Teton and successfully reached the summit before noon on Saturday. Senior Guide and Co-Owner of JHMG, Rob Hess delicately led Outside Magazine and Mountain Gear up the classic Upper Exum Ridge. While Wired, SNEWS, Climbing Magazine, Bent Gate Mountaineering, and Mountain Shop devoured the Owen-Spalding, and Pownall-Gilkey routes with the expert guiding from JHMG’s Tom Egan, Lisa Van Sciver, Keith Sidle, and Noah Ronckowski.

“When you mix the nation’s best retailers, media, and guides it’s hard to have a bad time” claimed Salewa’s Sales and Marketing Director Jim Lamancusa. “One of brand’s goals is to develop a product that everyone can trust and depend on. Mixing the press, dealers, and guides allows us to find unmatched insight into our footwear. It’s also the perfect testing ground for our technical footwear”.

With cracked lips and bloody hands the party descended from 13,770 parched and ready for Sushi at the Four Seasons of Jackson Hole.
