The Sierra Nevada of the Western United States - home to some of the most awe inspiring rock formations on Earth.
Hornblende is a component of much of the granite found throughout the Sierra Nevada mountain range; the dark specks in otherwise glistening white stone.
Shaped by glacial forces, the smooth, luminous faces of the Sierra have played host to some of the greatest feats in the realm of rock climbing. With giant domes calving into majestically shaped boulders, this landscape itself could keep an ambitious adventurer entertained for many lifetimes. Apparel meant for climbing in the alpine must be durable, protective, warm, and breathable, all of which the Hornblende Collection accomplishes. The color scheme of blue to green to grey comes from the tangible purity of the alpine world.
