Winner of the Outside Magazine Gear of the Year award, the renamed Cathode Hooded Jacket is the first insulated jacket that climbs as well as it belays. The Cathode features Schoeller® underarm side panels that stretch and breathe through crux moves, and water-resistant PrimaLoft® One insulation that keeps you warm during brisk predawn starts and blustery afternoons. Built with a super-lightweight Pertex® Quantum outer, the hybrid construction of the Cathode makes it an ideal choice for action in cold, wet alpine environments where lightweight, breathable warmth is critical.

Infinite Bliss is a super fun 23-pitch bolted route in a beautiful setting with the difficulty ranging from 5.6 to 5.10. While it is bolted, the impressive length of this climb makes it a serious endeavor. This route is not a true sport route. It is a bolt-protected slab climb with intermittent steep face climbing (especially the last 5 pitches. It is extremely long which means you need to be quick and efficient. People say that it is the longest bolted climb in the USA and Canada and it is located right here in our backyard - the beautiful Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie Valley. Infinite Bliss blurrs the lines between bigwall climbing, sport route and alpine rock route. Without a doubt it is a great test of one's climbing efficiency and an unforgettable adventure.
