No one perfects a kick-turn or learns to lead climb on their own. It’s through the guidance, support and passion of the entire outdoor community that we plan our route and unite over our common love of the outdoors.

At POW, we rely on the outdoor community too. We rely on that same guidance, support and passion from athletes, scientists, creatives and forward-thinking business leaders to help protect the places we love.

We call them our Alliance — it’s going to take all of their efforts, and yours, to solve the climate crisis.

Alliance Spotlight

Graham Zimmerman

Graham Zimmerman. Thirty-something male. Heavy drinker. Of coffee. Sporter of Moustache. Enamored with alpinism and the experiences, challenges and relationships that come from it.

Born in New Zealand raised in the Northwest. After being exposed to alpine terrain in the Cascades he moved back to NZ where he cut his teeth in the Southern Alps and became a strong part of the Kiwi climbing community. Then, after graduating from university in 2007 he moved back to the states and has been focused on climbing as it applies to alpinism ever since. This has taken him on expeditions from Alaska to Patagonia to Kyrgyzstan to Pakistan and all over the lower 48 and Canada where he has established numerous new routes on rock, ice and snow.

“That's the kind of world that we wanna live in, a world in which we can do the things that we love to do. The things that are our reason for being here, that are our reason for getting out of bed in the morning, we could do those things in a way that doesn't perpetuate climate change.”
