In Ice Axe We Trust (IIAWT) is a bi-monthly podcast that is designed to delve into and discuss all aspects of mountaineering – from novice to expert skill levels, from trailhead to summit, and from sea level to sky. IIAWT airs twice per month and touches on a wide range of topics that deal with hiking, mountaineering and climbing.
IIAWT is hosted by two guys who eat, sleep and dream mountaineering, The Last Adventurer and The Peak Seeker, along with a rotating selection of mountaineering luminaries, climbers, adventurers, and aspiring members of the mountaineering community.
You can listen live to IIAWT every second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 8 PM PST or follow us online at your leisure. Check out our archives to the right for recent podcasts.

He's worked for the National Park Service in Yosemite, climbed one of the seven summits and been on other big peaks around the world. He has over twenty years of experience in the backcountry and also a healthy fear of ghosts, zombies, Lemurians, and other totally real things.
In his spare time, The Last Adventurer writes a blog regarding his current adventures, which he thinks is humorous. He also tweets things that he sometimes thinks are profound, and occasionally takes a decent picture or two that he puts on Instagram.
Although he is currently serving a short sentence of mountain deprivation by living in the Midwest, he speaks, breathes, and dreams about mountains. To alleviate the pains of flat-land life, he adheres to a training schedule that includes running with a 20-pound backpack in the snow and ice of winter whilst rescuing wayward children and also searching for anything resembling a hill just to keep in shape for the next outdoors experience.
Mills is a new author and a longtime Web developer. One of his most recent projects is In the Bivvy, a website focused on outdoor gear deals. He is also known to do some other stuff on the Internet. He tweets things mostly about the mountains, and captures shots while getting lost in the wilderness to post on Instagram.
