Happy Father’s Day, dad! Thanks for always being there for me and for teaching me the value of spending time together outside. When my parents started camping, they sewed all their own equipment, from tents, to sleeping bags to down booties and pants. One of my most prized possessions is my dad’s old sewing machine from the 70s that I still use to repair my gear today. Thanks for all those days you spent teaching me how to ski, backpack and climb and for supporting me in my dreams, even if it isn’t always what you imagined for me. Our #climbforequality was inspired by the @heforshe movement, that highlights the role that men can play in supporting women’s leadership. My dad taught me how to be aggressive, fierce and careful in the mountains, and to seek high ground, whether camping or in approaching life. I love you so much! Happy Father’s Day to all the other dads out there.
