japans premier international climbing magazine is ‘wilderness’, carrying extended articles on climbing around the world. its a good place to be seen, with teton bros working with the publishers for a few years now, raising their profile from just big mountain skiers to climbers, inside and outside japan.

part of this process is using more climbing images, with iceclimbingjapan being the international link.

this image was taken as part of the Mountain Project, to showcase designs and examples of their use. the image here shows how the TMP expedition series is still highly functional for athletic ice climbing. note the harness friendly leg vents, thru-zip and double boot friendly lower legs on the Neoshell salopette and the streamlined profile off the Neoshell jacket.
