Way back in March I shared a link to a new website called Peakery.com, which was striving to become a social network for climbers, who could connect, share experiences, research climbs, and mark the summits they had bagged. At launch, it was a little rough around the edges, but the developers have been continuing to add features and update their database, and as of now the site now has more than 338,000 peaks across the globe in its records.
Fast forward a few months, and the site has now launched the Peakery Summer Kickoff Contest. To enter, you simply need to be a member of Peakery.com and during the month of July, simply post a summit log to your profile, including a summit photo. It can be from any climb you've completed in your life, but it must include a photo. Members will receive an entry into the contest for each summit log they add to their profile throughout the month.
At the end of July, the Peakery staff will randomly pick winners, and award the prizes. First prize is a GoLite Peak backpack, second prize is a GearPods Backcountry Multi-kit, and third is a Black Diamond Half-Dome Helmet.
All of that is great gear for your next outdoor adventure. Head over to Peakery.com now and sign-up, or update your profile, and get in on the fun.
