San Francisco, Calif. (October 10, 2013) –Brooks-Range Mountaineering Equipment Co. is adding two athletes, Aaron Richards and Rebeka Hamilton, to its ambassador team. Not only will they represent the brand, but they will also provide product development support.
Brooks-Range Mountaineering Equipment was born in the field by founder Matt Brooks, an AMGA certified mountain guide and accomplished alpinist. Specializing in top-quality, innovative gear and tools for both professional guides and recreational users alike, Brooks-Range understands the importance and value of working with ambassadors who are the best in the field.
“At Brooks-Range we work closely with our ambassadors to improve our gear,” says Brooks-Range’s General Manager, Jeff Blakely. “As experts in their field, their feedback is essential during product development.”
Both Richards and Hamilton are looking forward to their new roles as ambassadors.
About Rebeka Hamilton:
Hamilton’s passion for the outdoors began at a young age. She grew up hiking and biking during the summers, and nordic and downhill skiing during the winters. During nursing school she was part of an outdoor leadership program that helped her find her true passion in life: rock climbing. What started as top roping 30 foot walls in tennis shoes along the river in her hometown evolved into traveling around the USA looking for more technical walls. While she is mainly a sport climber, she also enjoys bouldering, trad climbing, and ice and alpine climbing as well. She lives in Boulder, Colorado so she can be close to outdoor activities all four seasons.
About Aaron Richards:
Richards is a professional mountain guide who lives in Bishop, California. He grew up in the cascades and earned a degree in botany from Oregon State University. Making a home in the Eastern Sierra has meant easier access to environments and challenges he loves best: large alpine walls, great couloir skiing and even a bit of ice. He’s working toward full IFMGA certification and continues to enjoy his work for Sierra Mountain Center, which unites his fascination with nature and his love of working with people.
Richards and Hamilton join other Brooks-Range Ambassadors Kevin Tatsugawa, Charlie Barrett, Silas Rossi, Matt Schonwald, Carlos Buhler, Mike Bromberg and Christopher Wright. Be sure to follow all their adventures and updates at www.brooks-range.com.
