Woolx scoured the globe searching for intrepid adventurers to test out Woolx gear in the most extreme conditions, we’ve assembled this group of globetrotting daredevils into the #WoolxinAction team! Every month Woolx Life will feature our amazing Woolx in Action team members – This month meet – Stacia Glenn!
Stacia combines her job in journalism and her passion for the outdoors while living and working in the Pacific Northwest. She spends much of her time mountaineering, hiking, climbing and trail running. But her love for the outdoors and wanderlust spirit mean she’s up for almost any adventure! You can follow along with Stacia’s adventures on her Instagram @staciangeliques and Twitter @stacia_glenn. To get to know Stacia better we asked her to fill out the new and improved “#WoolxinAction Questionnaire”, read on to delve deeper into the mind of an extreme brand ambassador!
10 Questions w/ Woolx:
What inspired you to become an outdoor adventurer, did you grow up participating in a lot of outdoor activities with your family, or is it something you were drawn to on your own later?
My parents regularly took my sister and I hiking and camping when we were young but it wasn’t until I moved to Washington more than six years ago that I made adventure the focus of my life. Rock climbing, mountaineering, trail running – I just can’t get enough!
Heading for the summit of El Dorado Peak- North Cascades.
Do you have any special plans, or trips in the works for 2017? Any big long term goals?
My big goals for 2017 are climbing 22,349-foot Ama Dablam and spending time at climbing crags in Croatia.
Our ambassadors come from all over the U.S., and we’ve got a few international team members too! What’s your favorite local activity, or the best part about exploring the region you call home?
The Pacific Northwest is home, which is good for me since there are mountains, beaches, woods and even rainforests within a few hours’ drive.
Mount Daniel – Snoqualmie Region, WA.
What’s your most embarrassing moment outdoors, or your favorite epic fail memory?
My first attempt at a big mountain was an epic, fun failure. I wore cotton. I packed completely unnecessary items in my too-heavy pack. My layering system was a disaster. I managed an alpine start but a huge storm forces us to retreat.
What is your most often worn, go-to Woolx item?
I live in the racerback tank tops in the summer and the base camp hoody once the air cools.
Celebrating on the summit of Sahale Mountain, North Cascades NP.
Do you have a personal motto, or words you live by?
Life has no limit if you’re not afraid to get in it.
Pizza or tacos?
Why not both, along with some ice cream?
Mountains or coastline?
I grew up on the coast but I am a mountain girl at heart.
Turning back for a look at Sherpa Peak – WA.
What place do you find yourself going back to over and over again? What place would you love to visit that you’ve never seen?
I cannot spend enough time in North Cascades National Park and I’d love to get to the Swiss Alps one day.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Live for the moment and forget the past and future.
Leading a 5.10c at Frenchman Coulee, WA.
Artist Point, near Mt. Baker.
