Hydroflask Video Series Profiles Alan Watts
January 25, 2018
Every picture tells a story, but video captures a series of moments and gives them context. Local company Hydroflask, who launched the first all-insulated bottle line-up into the market, wanted to do more for its customers than talk features. They wanted to share experiences in the form of video in the "Live" section of their website with "Stories that inspire us, to inspire you."
Hydroflask approached SmithRock.com about a year ago, looking for an inspiring story to tell about Smith Rock. The answer was obvious. The birth of sport climbing in the U.S. and the man that bore most of the labor pain, Alan Watts.
Beautifully shot and told, Alan takes us back in history for some perspective on his climbing career with cameos from SmithRock.com founder Mike Volk and climber extraordinaire, Ryan Palo. Enjoy! Then go here for a follow-up interview that Hydroflask did with Alan, as well as more inspiring stories.
