Mugs Stump Award
The Mug Stump Award has been suspended for the 2018 season to give time for remembrance, reflection and introspection. Please consider donating to the Hayden Fund to defend continued access to public lands, a cause near and dear to the hearts of Hayden and Inge. Thank you everyone for your compassion and support on this decision.
Grivel Ice Tool & Screw Sharpening Service
Visit our Heritage Sponsor Grivel every night in the Emerson Ballroom for our unique Ice Tool & Screw Sharpening Service with craftsman Phillip Dobson. Talk to gear experts on how to best tune your gear or have Phil do it for you. You can leave it with us for pick up in the morning. Stay tuned here for more details and how you can send your gear in prior to December 1st to be ready for pick up when you arrive in Bozeman.
Legendary Sunday Wrap Party
No event is complete with a Wrap Party. Over the years this celebration has become one of the highlights of the week as sponsors, athletes, organizers and participants come together one last time as a tribe to carbo-load and toast a week of life-changing experiences. Following dinner we will be treated to a very special presentation by Bozeman’s-own Anne Gilbert-Chase. This past June, Anne and Chantel Astroga completed an ascent of Denali’s Slovak Direct (5.9 X M6 WI6+). This marks the first female ascent of the 9,000-foot route, and the second time an all-female team has climbed an Alaska Grade VI. Presented by Patagonia.
The party features a catered meal, tasty Hyalite APA, and one of the great gear raffles in a town known for its swag. Join us Sunday, December 9 as we celebrate the 2018 recipient of the 11th annual Guy Lacelle Hyalite Service Award and the final drawing for the legendary Stoke Package. See who comes in naked and leaves an ice climber!
