scott_kranz - Although I’ve been celebrating all season long, today is the day. It was on this day 50 years ago – Oct. 2, 1968 – LBJ signed the enabling legislation for North Cascades NP, establishing its status and protection as one of our country’s great national parks. So grateful to have discovered mountains for myself here in this special park and rugged range. Happy 50th birthday @ncascadesnps! #northcascades #noca50 #nc50peaks #4togo - #regrann

Looking back on where we started that morning. It’s amazing how much ground you can cover with 14hours of daylight and a pound of sour patch kids. #nc50peaks

Sometimes we learn most when we take the path least known. Looking back on the last several years I’ve come to learn for myself the difference between certainty and security, on the one hand, and wonder and awe, on the other. And how aiming for the latter can lead you to a place where you can finally see who you truly are. Don’t mind me but I’m still reminiscing on 50 Peaks, the latest chapter in my larger journey into the unknown. Thankful to be on this wild ride. #nc50peaks @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

A highlight 50 Peaks trip into the remote Picket Range, a climb full of jagged ice-carved peaks, many miles of trail, scree, and talus, and even a black bear encounter. A month after the 50 Peaks completion, it’s clear these climbs will be solid memories of this unique park and range for me for years to come. I know I’ve said it many times before, but thank you to everyone for their support of the project from start to finish. 🙏🏼 #nc50peaks @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

50 peaks in less than 6 months. That's an accomplishment any way you look at it. Here's to 50 years in that beautiful park and many more after this one.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #strapinventureout #arcadebelts #NC50Peaks

North Cascades National Park. It turns 50 this year. In honor of this beautiful park's birthday @scott_kranz planned on climbing 50 peaks in the park in the very short span of 5 months. ⠀ ⠀ Spoiler alert: he did it.⠀ ⠀ Check it out on his profile for more info on his 50 Peaks project, and stay tuned here as we share more of this epic achievement! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #strapinventureout #arcadebelts #NC50Peaks

very glorious.. A random invitation can go a long way. After a chance run in with Colton a few days prior in Mt. Rainier National Park we met back up some 200 miles away in the North Cascades. Joining @scott_kranz and @bejamin for a wild three day trek to one of the most remote areas in the lower 48, spanning some 50 miles on the trail, and the last two peaks of Scotts #nc50peaks challenge(which he did solo). I've hiked and climbed with a lot of people over the years but have rarely met anyone as driven as Scott. Knocking out 50 peaks in one season is a mental, physical, and logistical nightmare that I can hardly even imagine. Congrats Scott! Via : elliothawkey

A “sea of peaks.” When standing on any one summit in the North Cascades, you often get to gaze over endless peaks and ridges as far as the eye can see. Even so, you’re only viewing a small fraction of the entire range. Beckey put it well: “regardless of the climbs that get done, the Cascades will never be climbed out.” Looking forward to a lifetimes’ worth of exploration here. #nc50peaks #northcascades #cascades #pnw

Only when you know that enough is enough will you ever truely have enough. Out here you can only have what you’re willing to carry, proof that this journey we’re on doesn’t require a lot of things to be happy, just experiences.

I spent some time climbing Sahale Peak in the North Cascades with my parents this weekend. I was blown away by some of the most awe inspiring terrain I have ever been in. I’m also totally inspired by @scott_kranz after listening to him give a presentation on his 50 Peaks project last night. I have so many peaks I can’t wait to climb now! #NC50peaks

The challenge of the North Cascades surely can't be summed up in an instagram post, that's for damn sure... but I'll wager if you asked my good buddy Scott what that challenge means to him, he'd have roughly 50 stories to sum it up well 😀 Congrats to finishing out an incredible project @scott_kranz! If you're not familiar, check out Scott's page and link for more info and incredible photos of his adventures this past 5 months climbing 50 peaks in North Cascades National Park for its 50th anniversary.

A national park and mountain range that’s bigger than me and you. Bigger than 50 peaks, or 50 years. It sometimes feels bigger than life itself. In the wake of my 50 Peaks project, I’m blown away at all the rugged beauty in this wild place. And humbled to call it my home range. Here are more highlights from the project, all unshared on my feed minus the last slide (a blooper reposted by request 😅). A great big thank you to all of my amazing climbing partners (I’ve tagged them all above) who joined me on so many big trips and expeditions into these mountains. Grateful for all your support. 🙏🏼 📷 credit: yours truly (slides 1 & 2); @coltonandrewjacobs (slides 3, 7, 9); @mitchpittman (slide 4); @wheretowillie (slides 5 & 8); @nickrlake (slide 6); @caseys3 (slide 10) #NC50Peaks

Over the course of my project this season I've gained a total of nearly 200k feet of elevation and covered well over 400 miles on foot. (In fact I've lost about 15 pounds since I started, and my legs might be as strong as they've ever been!) Truth be told, though, the vast majority of this elevation and mileage involved long, tiring stretches of forested trail or mountain slopes, bushwhacking, scrambling up loose scree and talus – a lot of strenuous movement, and plenty of pain and even some misery. But it's funny how even the briefest of moments on the summit, and especially those first few minutes when the morning sun paints the surrounding mountains and ridge lines, makes you so thankful to be out there. We're beyond fortunate to have these wild places to experience, protect, and pass on. #nc50peaks @eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #ebcontributor

Summit views from Peak 47/50. I’ve spent a fair amount of time above the clouds as of late, and that’s never a bad thing. On this particular climb, we covered over 22 miles and nearly 7k in elevation gain, including some exciting fresh-snow-covered scrambling, in a 12 hour span car to car. Three peaks to go – can you believe it?! Stay tuned this week, as I try to make a sprinting finish before full-on winter arrives. #nc50peaks Needing to go as fast and light as possible on these few final climbs, I’ve parced down my camera gear kit to the @sonyalpha RX100 VI, which fits in the palm of my hand. Shot this at 1/320 sec, f/6.3, ISO80, at 18mm. Comment below with any questions about my climbing/shooting process. #alphacollective #bealpha

Happy 50th birthday North Cascades National Park! My grandpa grew up playing & smoke jumping in these mountains before it was a National Park. Now my husband loves to play in these mountains and works to help the park. I guess you can say this National Park has a special place in my heart... #nc50peaks #finalfourpeaks

Ultra-classic ridge lines in the American Alps. As winter conditions slowly take hold of the high alpine here in the Cascades, I’m reflecting on all my climbs from the heart of summer, involving clear skies, warm temps, and dry rock. Although my remaining climbs (4 more!) might be a bit snowier and more serious due to inclement weather, the sense of adventure will be all the same. Hope everyone had a great weekend, wherever you found yourself. #nc50peaks

7am. Post summit, pre breakfast... the following 12hours would take me to the edge of my endurance. Bagging two peaks out in this range means climbing through the dark on both sides of the sun. If you missed my story from this incredible trip be sure to catch it in my “story highlights” under my profile. ✌🏻

The culmination of ambition and resilience, plus a handful of sour patch kids. #nc50peaks

Valleys and peaks. These three slides show two different views enjoyed from one single spot – a glacial shelf on an adjacent peak – while preparing a pre-summit dinner with a friend. Between the exchange of food and drink, and good conversation, my eyes gravitated toward these two features. One, a deep valley lined by a string of lakes. And two, a snow-capped volcano painted in alpenglow. While you can have both, which do you prefer? The valley or the peak? #nc50peaks #valleys #mountains
