As versatile as the skills needed for the first ascents of Golden Age of Mountaineering are the garments that accompanied such 19th century climbs.  Of such ensembles & equipment perhaps none was more important than the robust knitwear of the era.

Appropriate at nearly any elevation and stage of upward route finding these sweaters created a wardrobe efficiency allowing ski mountaineers a single element of their kit that could simultaneously act as a base, mid-layer, or outerwear thus greatly reducing the need for superfluous overages of gear which could hinder transit times and carrying loads. Hearty, warm, and offering a comfortable range of motion for scrambles and stretching to hard-to-reach holds, Alps & Meters commands a deep respect for the sewn fibers of 1800’s whose innovative characteristics and weaves delivered to the climbing community a wardrobe essential that remains a core staple of alpinism today.

The Ascent Shawl Collar Knit is born of the mountains and harnesses knitwear’s dynamic benefits to deliver a sweater of Forged Performance character and complexion ideal for the Gentleman Skier’s aggressive route finding and mountaineering pursuits.
