Pamela Shanti Pack
Pamela is a professional climber, writer, Pilates instructor and hydrographic surveyor with a degree from Yale University. Pamela also created and guides a series of renowned specialty "Art of Offwidth” climbing clinics. She has been seeking out North America’s most challenging inverted and vertical offwidth climbs since 2008 because, like surveying in the Bering Sea, they test her physical and psychological limits. In addition, she has done over one-hundred first female ascents of offwidths throughout the American West including the first female ascent of Lucille 5.13a (onsight) in Vedauwoo, WY. Pamela was not only the first woman in the world to climb a 5.13 offwidth, but also received the prestigious Golden Piton Award in 2009 for establishing Gabriel in Zion National Park which was the first 5.13+ offwidth in the world and remains a global test-piece.
Pamela has spent the last decade establishing beautiful and committing routes (most with crux vertical and invert style offwidth pitches) throughout the American West.
Pamela's Impression of EyeSend Glasses:
"I never have used belay glasses until using the PitchSix adjustable glasses. These are brilliant for belaying my partners on hour long offwidth leads. They are not only adjustable, the clarity is extraordinary. I don’t know how I’ve gotten by this long without them!"
Karsten has climbed extensively throughout the United States including Grade V big walls in The Black Canyon, Long’s Peak, and Zion National Park to the snow and ice climbs of the North Cascades and New England. Karsten’s experience outside of the U.S. includes many peaks over 17,000ft in Boliva and Equador, as well as major alpine objectives in Africa and Argentina. Karsten spends his winters chasing good snow and ice and the rest of the year traveling the world working for Pisgah Climbing School heading up their alpine programs.
Karsten is a professional mountain athlete and mountain guide. His exploits are featured in the Sony Pictures film Himalayan Ice. He spends much of his time in the mountains but also studying technical systems and has an Instagram account that is known for #techtiptuesday climbing tips.

Karsten's Impression of EyeSend Glasses:
I don’t use belay glasses a ton because I am in bigger terrain going light and fast. So I leave them in my ice and crag pack as well as my gym pack and usually forget they are there until my neck starts hurting. Then I am like “oh yea, hold on a second, let me fix this pain in my neck!” I’ve had EyeSend glasses for a while now, and the adjustable angle fixes that pain better than any other pair out there!
Fernando de la Mora
Fernando de la Mora is from Guadalajara, Jal Mexico and has been climbing for the last 10 years. He tries to combine ropes and bouldering as he feels this is the best way to improve. His ascents include ...
One of the best things that he loves about climbing is to try hard. Try a “muerte”, to push your limits until you can. Fernando always makes sure he's enjoying hte ride and having a great time.
Fernando's Impression of EyeSend Glasses:
"I love the belay glasses because they are super practical and functional. I've used belay glasses before but the adjustable feature of these is amazing! If you're in Mexico and would like a discount code I'll hook you up!"
