Crackerjack is proud to be a partner, sponsor, and active participants in the critical research expeditions by the team at Glacier Cave Explorers.
Our planet is losing glacial ice at an alarming rate. Glacier Cave Explorers pioneers new ways to collect valuable data from glaciers before these unique scientific laboratories disappear completely. We lead discovery-driven expeditions that combine mountaineering, caving, and science to study glaciers from under the ice. Our expert team conducts ongoing projects in the Pacific Northwest on Mt Hood, Mt St Helens and Mt Rainier.
Thanks to our partners at Deployed Logix, Skedco, and Hilleberg Tents for their in kind donations on previous trips. We couldn’t do it without you. The logistics load out consists of tents, food, stoves, fuel, rescue gear, rigging gear, patient packaging and extraction equipment, a power system to keep all the scientific gear running, sanitation, communications equipment, and the occasional stuffed penguin. roughly 1000lbs of gear will move up and back down the mountain in a tightly coordinated effort.
Crackerjack provides equipment, logistics, field medical, and planning support without profit consideration. We help procure the massive amount of equipment and prep, maintain, and store it at cost or less. Our on mountain medical teams and hazmat specialists volunteer their time! Please help in any way you can.
