Help support and camp in style with a Mountain Hardwear Spire 2 Tent from Click on the photo below…


The Mountain Hardwear Spire 2 is an ultralight 2-person 4-season double-wall tent for alpine climbers and mountaineers who like to move light and fast in the high mountains. The Spire’s double doors are each protected by a vestibule to allow you and your partner to enter the tent without getting snow inside. The double vestibules are also excellent for cooking in a storm and storing gear. At 4lb 9oz, this Mountain Hardware tent weighs far less than most 4-season double-wall tents while remaining strong enough to withstand horrendous winter storms. Light enough for an alpine style assault and burly enough for a fixed camp, the Spire is an incredibly versatile mountaineering tent.

Bottom Line: Travel light and camp comfortably with the Mountain Hardwear Spire 2 tent.

    Hi Tab – that’s the right answer, however it is only the second of five clues. They start with identifying a continent (clue #1), then a country (clue 2), then a region (clue #3) then a mountain range (clue 4) and then a specific peak (clue 5). Check back next week on Tuesday at 10:00 for the next clue and congratulations on getting this one right.
