Just like a pickup truck that’s outfitted with a jacuzzi, good outdoor gear hits just the right note between comfort and durability. Pamper your outer mountaineer with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of outdoor gear and apparel at Second Ascent.
The rugged racks at Second Ascent are stocked with new and used goods that will make an outdoor climbing, backpacking, skiing, or cycling adventure a high-geared experience. Consult the knowledgeable, traveled, and bewhiskered staff for directions when hiking through the store, which is full of tough goods such as the Five Ten Marvel ($49.95), a nimble and protective running shoe that will help wearers outrun a wild boar. Or, try on the Marmot Cruz convertible pants ($44.95), a 100% durable nylon pants that works as well on a steep trail as it does cruising down a sun-soaked boulevard with the wind in your leg hair. In addition to goods that help the body attack outdoor obstacles, Second Ascent also outfits the mind an assortment of books about great hiking locations and techniques for ascending library shelves.
The Second Ascent staff works diligently to repair cycles, assemble skis, and outfit customers with gear and apparel for all backcountry and outdoor pursuits. They stock and fold apparel from brands such as Patagonia and Vibram FiveFingers to dress adventurers from head to toe, and accessorize them with essential equipment such as headlamps, chalk bags, and backpacks. Technicians in both the full-service bike shop and onsite ski shop repair and tune cycles and skis to help customers ride more smoothly. And the other members of the well-traveled staff remain eager to assist and answer any questions about appropriate adventure equipment, conditions, and the safest way to tickle a napping grizzly.
