Glacier Black Gear 

The idea of Glacier Black was founded in the high mountain range of the Nevados in Colombia around 2014 then merged with PaliKoa Canyon in 2021 to become what it is today. The vision of creating an adventure brand that not only helped achieve your outdoor goals with quality technical gear but also helped with preserving the very places we all go to explore!

Many outdoor brands do just this so how are we different? We are locally owned, operated, and strive to preserve the wilderness lands and the wildlife that roam in them. Glacier Black strives to bring you state of the art gear that is accessible to all. We are dedicated to education and promoting social responsibilities. Our gear is designed in the Pacific Northwest and tested in the most rugged environments in the world! 

Every team member here at Glacier Black including our designers have spent most of their lives climbing, rafting, canyoning, canyoneering, and adventuring around in over 150 countries. As we all adventure we want to make sure we are continuously protecting the playground we all enjoy. So, with your help as we grow,  Glacier Black plans to donate over 10% of its profits to Non-Profits & NGOs around the world with conservation and humanitarian missions of preserving and protecting the Earth and its people.

We appreciate each and every one of you and thank you for your support!

Have fun and stay safe. Remember to Adventure with Purpose!

Canyons are Calling

This podcast will cover all things related to canyoneering and canyoning. We will interview people in the canyoneering community that have some knowledge to contribute. Either by providing gear, beta, first descents, or were maybe involved in an accident or mishap where we will discuss what we can all learn.

Our hope with this podcast is to provide the listener with epic, entraining and educational stories that will help us all be more safe and adventurous canyoneers.

The Canyons are Calling... LETS GO!!

A brand for the modern-day nomad. We are climbers, mountain bikers, guides, canyoneers, rafters and everything between. With a nod to the harsh and diverse demands of the desert, we set out to craft gear made specifically for its untamed landscape. With product rooted in innovation, creativity, and performance, we aim to inspire and equip a new generation of desert adventurers.

Life is too short to stay indoors! At Gear Perspective, we are creating a new perspective on gear. Gear that is lighter, using technology inspired materials and ideas to enhance your adventures not hinder them.

Elevated Climbing started as a small operation in Chattanooga, TN but has quickly grown to include many domestic and international partners.  However, our goal is still the same: to provide ONLY the best gear available.  Countless hours have been spent in an effort to research and field test all equipment before reaching the website so that you know that what you are getting is a superior product.  We at Elevated Climbing pride ourselves in taking the extra steps to ensure that our customers have the best gear experience possible when doing what they are passionate about.

Rocky Talkie was founded in Denver, Colorado in late 2019 by longtime friends and adventure partners Bryce Jones and Alex Page. Having searched in vain for a reliable radio that was easy to use in the backcountry, they set out to create their own.
After several years of prototypes and cycle after cycle of rigorous testing, the Rocky Talkie was born: a radio rugged enough to withstand the elements and keep adventurers connected.

Adventure Plus has been training and outfitting outdoor enthusiasts since 2000. We believe in providing the best gear and training available for adventures above and below the water.

We strive to have the best selection of canyoneering gear available anywhere in the US and regularly seek out new and innovative products from around the world.

The history of the Fédération Internationale de Canyonisme (FIC) begins in 2003 with the desire to have an international canyon festival. These events, called “Rassemblement Internationale de Canyon” (RIC), were held annually. In 2014, French canyoneers collaborated with canyoneers from around the world to form a new association: International Association of Amateur Canyoning (IAAC). The association was dedicated to recreational (aka “amateur” in French law) canyoning.

Interested in Sponsoring?

The Ouray Canyoning Festival is a project of the Ouray Canyon Club, Inc. an all volunteer non-profit 501(c)3 organization incorporated in the State of Colorado. The Ouray Canyoning Festival could not be possible without the amazing support of the canyoning community and our sponsors.
