John Muir was a legendary wilderness badass and you will be too.
Our legendary adventures are famous for the jam-packed, adrenaline-pumping weekends full of adult humor, outdoor vino, gnarly hikes, flasks, scars, broken bones, lots of ibuprofen, flasks, inappropriate jokes, things getting weird, and always one hell of an adventure making friends with rad people. Our moms probably wouldn't approve.
Join the Crew.
Push yourself to find adventure in your backyard. Find your reasons to get you out, get you up, get you going, to inspire you, to move you, but most importantly, to live every minute you are alive.
Find your inner Wilderness Badass.

Grow Your Mountain Wings
Six Peak Series
The Grow Your Mountain Wings Series is a simple concept: Six Peaks. 27,631 feet elevation gain. 80.8 miles. One Crew.
To earn your mountain wings, you must be in the mountains. We would call this is a challenge, but the Wilderness Badass Crew only knows how to push each other rather than let doubts take over and not let them finish.
The Six Peaks are no joke, but neither is the Crew. We may be able to go faster alone, but we will go farther when we go together. And this crew knows how to push and move fast, so will continue to do so. Join us.
