Most companies have one bottom line. At Clif Bar & Company, we are a private, family and employee-owned company guided by five “bottom lines” or what we call our Five Aspirations: Sustaining our Business, Brands, People, Community and the Planet. These aspirations help us consider decisions from multiple perspectives that we value, and we choose the word “aspiration” in recognition that we’re on a journey and can always do more in each of these areas.

The pick is manufactured by a special process from high strength armor steel and then heat-treated. Due to the special properties of the steel grades used for picks production, heat-treatment allows to obtain an extremely high hardness level while maintaining elasticity. This results in increased durability and service life – the characteristics which are particularly important for outdoor dry-tooling and long mixed routes. The aggressive geometry of the pick calls for a special (top-down) hitting technique on pure ice routes.

I have the privilege to work with some pretty amazing companies. In all that I do, the support that I’m given, it makes things a lot easier– so that I can put more attention into the tasks at hand.
