We decided to get some pumpkins and do our best at climbing related carvings - here is the result from what we like to call "AAI South."
|To start, we have Mike Pond's Black Diamond themed winking pumpkin. Both of his eyes were supposed to be the BD logo, but an operator error was exploited to create this sly devil.|
|Next is Jeremy Devine's American Alpine Institute inspired pumpkin. He did his best to copy our logo and carve it out, but without the special carving tools he did not have the ability to cut out letters. It was a valiant effort for sure.|
|I went for more of a barbaric inspiration, with the execution of my pumpkin via a Petzl Sum'tec ice axe. I think this carving really captures both the aggressiveness and versatility of this fantastic piece of equipment.|
