Our Story

Our own story began in May 1993 when president, Lance Piatt, and avid outdoorsman, faced a life or death crisis when he and 2 friends got lost on his first climb up Mount Hood.

“This was a route that every buddy and their mom does”, Lance remembers, “people in high heels, you name it. It’s a trade route but there is one catch. Because the route has open space, should bad weather hit, you could lose your bearings.”

Which was exactly what happened.

After the climbers finished ascending to Hood’s Pearly Gates, the weather nose-dived. Within minutes the climbers found themselves in blizzard conditions with freezing ice and no visibility. Becoming disoriented, they drifted off the trail heading towards the treacherous Zigzag Canyon.

“Suddenly I realized that we were in an ‘oh shit’ moment. There I was, thrirty-two years old, realizing I was finished. I choked back tears, prayed and thought about my six-month old son, Torrey, and my wife, Monika. It was hard to accept that my life was about to be over.”
