The Arc'teryx store on Newbury Street in Boston will be kicking off the cold months with the first installment of their annual fall party. Come by on Wednesday, October 5th at 6 pm for drinks, a great slideshow, and camaraderie among fellow winter-lovers. Reserve a free ticket now on eventbrite

The focus of the event will be a slideshow given by Rick Wilcox, famed climber and force within the North American climbing community. The presentation will cover Rick's progression from being a young climber here in the Northeast to leading a team to a successful ascent of Mt. Everest in 1991. Rick will also be talking about his experience at Everest base camp during the 2015 Nepal earthquake and the ongoing relief effort in the region. A percentage of sales made on the day of the event will be donated to help those affected by the earthquake in Nepal. 

Drinks from Downeast Cider will be served to those with a valid ID and a great deal of Arc'teryx gear will be handed out to winners of games and raffles, including a men'sor women's Beta SV Jacket.

Friends of the store like Petzl, Dustin Marshall Photography, Brooklyn Boulders Expeditions, the American Alpine Club, and a few others will be at the event giving away prizes.
