For those who believe the mantra:

Suffer now. Enjoy Later.

We love ourselves a little Type 2 Fun, so we made a whole collection of products just celebrate the struggle.

What is Type 2 fun?

Here's a quick rundown of the "Fun Scale" from climber Kelly Cordes.

"Type I Fun – true fun, enjoyable while it’s happening.

Good food, good sex, 5.8 hand cracks, sport climbing, powder skiing. Margaritas.

Type II Fun – fun only in retrospect, hateful while it’s happening.

Things like working out ‘till you puke, and usually ice and alpine climbing.

Type III Fun – not fun at all, not even in retrospect."

Excerpt from "The Fun Scale." Written by climber & author Kelly Cordes

If you're a Type-2 Fun climber... hold on to your harnesses. We have something really special coming up for you!
