Archival Mountaineers

Posted on: March 16th, 2010 by Tom Bonamici

This spring mountaineering season: Pull on your knickers, grab your rucksack, lace up your tallest boots, help your pals with their bowlines-on-a-bight, and head for the hills. Here in Oregon, I’ll limit archivally-equipped outings to big, basic mountains – South Sister would be ideal, but the bold could go for Three-Fingered Jack, named after an infamously disfigured 19th century bandit. Archival Clothing is not responsible for the failure of wooden ice axes or hempen ropes.

    Wicked cool broadfalls on the guy in the 2nd photo. Navy surplus, do you suppose?

    Love the wood shafted ice axes. Also climbing while wearing a tie is classy.

    And don’t forget the awesome knee-length wool socks with the red tops yet!

    Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

    Can someone help me find it?

    Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn’t have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

    Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
