Paul Denkewalter

Paul Denkewalter Paul is founder and owner of the outdoor and climbing gear outlet, as well as an accomplished mountaineer with decades of climbing experience in Alaska. Paul's intensity and grace shows through in this interview as he shares stories of climbing some of the most challenging routes in Alaska in the company of other eminent Alaska mountaineers. He gives us an insider's view of climbers, group dynamics, and the changes in mountaineering technology that have helped climbers to reach higher and go farther. Though Paul no longer climbs, he remains dedicated to the spirit of exploration out of doors, and his business helps outfit others as they pursue their own outdoor challenges.
