Brooks-Range Mountaineering Equipment, a manufacturer of backcountry and
mountaineering equipment, added slacklining expert, Emily Sukiennik as
the newest member of the Brooks-Range athlete team.

Emily Sukiennik, 25, has perfected the art of combining two sports that
can provide the ultimate thrill. As an active rock climber, she has
summited some of North America's most challenging routes. In 2009, she
started slacklining and within months became the fourth woman in the
world to walk the Lost Arrow Spire Highline in Yosemite Valley, Calif.,
3,500 feet off the valley floor. Today she continues to excel in all
three categories of the sport: Tricklining, Highlining, and Longlining.
In 2010 she won the Humboldt Classic Trickline Competition, Women's
Category in Humboldt, Calif. and in 2011 she was a semi-finalist at the
ISPO International Trickline competition in Munich, Germany. This year,
she reached her goal of walking Dean Potter's 120' long Highline in
Moab, Utah and she also beat her personal Longline record by walking a
413' line also in Moab. In 2010, she collaborated with fellow
slackliners Mike Payton and Frankie Najera on a DVD titled “Slackline
101” and is featured in newly released book titled Modern Slacklining by
sister athlete Hayley Ashburn. As one of the few female leaders of the
sport, Sukiennik is also passionate about teaching others how to walk
the line.

“As an athlete who pushes the limits and thrives off adrenaline, Emily
is going to fit right in with our family of outdoor athletes,” said Matt
Brooks, president of Brooks-Range Mountaineering Equipment Co. “Emily
embodies the sprit of adventure and enthusiasm that Brooks-Range is
passionate about. Her positive energy will shine through when she
participates in events, social media and marketing opportunities on
behalf of Brooks-Range and our customers can look forward to seeing her
amazing videos with Brooks-Range products, of course!”
