Jim Bridwell Takes First Place in Jetboil Big Wall Cook-Off

Jim Bridwell won Jetboil’s Big Wall Cook-Off event at the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City; he has chosen The Access Fund to be the recipient of the $500 prize, donated equally by Jetboil and Verde PR and Consulting.

Jim Bridwell, legendary pioneer of the climbing sport we know today, reconfirmed his place in history by winning Jetboil's Big Wall Cook-Off event at the Outdoor Retailer Show in Salt Lake City.

The event, which took place at the Rock & Ice Climber's Ranch, pitted four of the world's top big wall climbers in a head-to-head cooking contest using Jetboil's Personal Cooking System (PCS) featuring their new-for-07 Hanging Kit accessory. The new Hanging Kit is compatible with the original PCS, the Group Cooking System (GCS) and the brand new FluxRing® Fry Pan.

Competition was intense, with Conrad Anker, Pete Takeda, Ivo Ninov and Bridwell all battling for first place and a $500 purse to be donated to the winner's organization of choice.

Jim Bridwell has chosen The Access Fund to be the recipient of the $500 prize, half of which will be donated by Jetboil, and half by Verde PR & Consulting of Durango, Colo. The Access Fund is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the climbing environment for rock climbing, mountain climbing and bouldering.
