Daniel Brazil wants to establish a first ascent in the Cloud Peak Wilderness Mountain Range in Wyoming to honor Todd Skinner and Paul Piana. As Daniel approaches 50 years old he has set into motion a plan to climb 50 inspiring ascents by the time he reaches that age. By documenting this journey on his website, climb50x50.com, Daniel hopes to inspire others to reach for their own adventure. ($500)

Eric Carter and his partner Nick Elson are experienced climbers and skiers attempting a new speed record on the Liberty Ridge of Mount Rainer. While the only known record is around 21 hours for ascent and descent back to White River campground, these two are shooting for a new record of less than 10 hours. They will ascend Liberty Ridge and ski descend the Emmons Glacier route with two teams of safety support. ($300)

Ronald Schilb has only four of the 50 state high points left to climb. After being thwarted on 2 separate trips to Gannett Peak in Wyoming he’s asking for support in returning to complete his high point goal. With all team members over the age of 60, this group is keeping the dream alive by still seeking adventure and pushing themselves in the outdoor world. ($200)
