Peak Mountain Guides staff member Angela Hawse recently passed her final guides’ exam to gain certification in all AMGA disciplines: Rock, Alpine, and Ski Mountaineering. She is one of only 7 female guides in the US to have completed all three AMGA exams! This gives her the highly regarded IFMGA international license for mountain guides, which is the highest level of guide certification as recognized by the International Federation of Mountain Guide Associations, the international governing body on mountain guiding.  This is a truly commendable achievement and it demonstrates Angela’s unique talent as a mountain guide.  Way to go Angela!

Here is a video that Angela created during her final exam, the ski mountaineering guide’s exam, which she just took in the Chugach Range of Alaska.

Petzl has just released a new DVD titled “All Access” that is comprised of 10 short climbing films.  The proceeds from the sale of the DVD, which is reasonably priced at just $10, go directly to the Access Fund for their Land Conservation Campaign.  Petzl America coverered the production cost of these films and the filmakers and athletes donated their time for this good cause.  If you would like to show your support for the Access Fund you can purchase the DVD at the Access Fund Store.

Here is short trailer of the All Access DVD:
