2018 Climbs

“The Year of the Jaguar”

In 2018, we will be raising awareness and funds for the jaguar species and donating to the non-profit Panthera.

On each climb, hikers are educated on important conservation issues, specifically focusing on an endangered species.  Hikers build awareness and create a global dialogue for species extinction.  Hikers also commit to fundraising!

Trips for 2018 include both men and women.


February 10-19, 2018


Join us as we hike in beautiful Costa Rica while learn about important environmental and cultural issues!  This is a special hike in partnership with the Katie Adamson Conservation Fund as we join forces to educate and raise awareness about wildlife conservation.
