Light, tough, and never a liability on the rock, the Progressor Collection enables you to think less about what to wear and more about what to climb. A day on the wall can bring any number of weather conditions and the gear you choose to carry with you is crucial. Move lighter and faster in the mountains with a big wall layering system that features six interactive layers.


Incredible Hulk

"Solar Flare" (5.12d)

The North Face athletes Emily Harrington and Alex Honnold teamed up to complete a free ascent of ‘Solar Flare’ (5.12d) and take on the Incredible Hulk, one of the biggest granite walls in the High Sierras. Making their approach at dawn by the light of headlamps, the pair followed the route set in 2009 by renowned climbers Peter Croft and Conrad Anker and they raced to send before the strong winds of a late morning storm rolled through.
