About Fixed Pin

Our Vision

When we started this company in the spring of 2008, we envisioned a company that would allow others to share our love for climbing, crisp mountain air, starry nights, wilderness, forests in all their incredible varieties and beautiful natural landscapes. Our vision is that Fixed Pin will:

  • Benefit the climbing community through the publication of innovative, high quality, and user friendly guidebooks
  • Promote climbing ethics that benefit the long-term sustainability of the climbing community
    • Conduct business in a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable fashion

    Ben started climbing as soon as he could walk, beginning with jungle gyms and chimneying in the doorways of his parents' house in Denver. He started climbing outside after his parents moved to Boulder when he was 14. He has enjoyed big wall climbing in Yosemite, crack climbing in the desert, bouldering in Hueco Tanks, and many others.

      Jason originally hails from Michigan, where he quickly tapped out the vertical possibilities of the state and opted to move to the Red River Gorge to hone his craft. Since then he has climbed in Alaska, Africa, Asia, South America and all over the continental US. Jason now lives in Colorado, and putting up remote and hard first-ascents continues to be one of his favorite pastimes.
