In the last installment of The Firn Line in 2018, we’ll get to know climber, educator and activist, Len Necefer.

Len holds a Ph.D in Engineering and Public Policy, and is founder of Natives Outdoors, an outdoor products company whose products serve to support indigenous people.

In our conversation, we discuss Len’s roots and identity as a Navajo, experiencing racism in college, and his love for climbing and the outdoors (among other things).
