Think of a dream and make it happen!
From October 1 through December 14, 2012, the 2013 Mugs Stump Award will be accepting applications. The grants are for small climbing teams with fast and light alpine objectives.
Climbers who share Mugs’ vision of climbing are encouraged to apply.
Established in 1993 to honor the late Mugs Stump, each year the Mugs Stump Award provides grants to a select number of individuals and teams whose proposed climbs present an outstanding challenge—a first ascent, significant repeat or first alpine-style ascent—with special emphasis placed on climbers leaving no trace of their passage.
Sponsored by Alpinist Magazine, Black Diamond Equipment, Ltd., Mountain Gear, Patagonia, Inc., and W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc., the Mugs Stump Award encourages men, women and teams from North America to submit their applications for a part of this year’s $25,000 in grant funding.
