Les Carnets de voyages

Escapades d’un week-end, expéditions de plusieurs mois, raids d’une semaine — quelle que soit la durée du séjour et quelle que soit la destination, chez Black Diamond, nous adorons voyager. Nous les aimons tout particulièrement ces avions bondés, ces bus au confort rudimentaire, ces trains branlants, ces voitures de location miteuses, ces ânes têtus ou autre bête de somme qui nous aident à porter notre matériel… tous ces signaux qui nous disent « en route pour l’aventure ». De l’Alaska à l’Algérie en passant par l’Australie et l’Arménie, le monde regorge d’une infinité de possibilités pour grimper, skier, explorer…C’est ici dans cette rubrique Carnets de voyages que vous trouverez les récits d’aventures vécues aux quatre coins du globe.

Copp-Dash Inspired: Craig Muderlak’s Alaskan Adventure
At Black Diamond, we’re passionate about empowering climbers to not only push their limits in the mountains, but to also share their stories of inspiration when they come home. That’s why we sponsor the Copp-Dash Inspire Award. Established in the memory of Jonny Copp and Micah Dash—two leading alpinists, BD brothers and storytellers who lost their lives in the mountains in 2009—the award is a way to keep their vision alive. Craig Muderlak, a filmmaker, artist and climber, won the 2016 Copp-Dash award to document a rowdy plan to put up first ascents in Alaska … but that was only half of the story. His team would also travel by homemade skis, burn ‘em to lose the weight and then pack raft back to civilization. This is his story, told with the help of artwork he created after his adventure.
