Francis gets after it. He can send some beautiful lines up a route and also down a slope. He gets a lot of street cred for having a last name that starts with “Z” and he probably spends less than 17 total minutes indoors, each month.

If you ask Hayden to hang out, he might show up with a rope and carabiners. His interpretation of hanging out is often literal, and you can find him dangling from a rope, spending time on a portaledge, and sending 5.11s in his sleep.

His nickname is Denali. He has lived out of a van with his wife for the last 4 years. He is the person that you want with you if you ever encounter an avalanche. It’s possible that his secret powers originate from his majestically groomed facial hair.

It takes about 3 seconds of looking at Eric’s Instagram feed to determine that he is an adrenaline junkie. If he’s not bombing down a run then he’s likely hanging from a cliff, camping on a sketchy precipice, or logging major miles in his Suburban on lengthy roadtrip.
