Marmot Product report from Fabrizio Zangrilli- Marmot/AAO athlete!

AAO Filed Under:
This photo is from a great day of mixed climbing on Mount Lady Washington, RMNP CO, two days ago. The climbing was great fun, very moderate multi pitch mixed climbing (M4-5 ish) in the sun with great pro and great views to the east face (Diamond) of Longs!
I must tell you that after so many years of not wearing Gore-tex I am really loving the Alpinist Jacket and Pant! Really loving them, they are so stretchy and dynamic, and quiet - this is a huge change from the Gore I remember. It is nice to know that I can be dry all day alpine climbing and comfortable at the same time!!! If, like me, you have only been wearing soft shell for the past half decade, it is worth having another look at hard-shells with stretch.

As you can see I am also wearing the SCARPA Phantom 6000s - amazing boots, as you know, they climb so well, as well as any single boot I have ever worn - and you know that I have worn many pairs over the past 25 years! I anticipated going to a NE facing route that day, otherwise I would have been in my Phantom Guides, but we saw the chance to climb some mixed routes that form infrequently, and being south facing and warm we jumped at the chance - it is cold in Rocky Mountain National Park at this time of year in the shade. I had the AAO Athlete Ambassador Baffin Jacket with me in my pack at the base, but it was not needed up there.
Thanks so much for all the support over the years!!!!
