ABOUT THE FILM

In 1980, Ron Gregg watched his frostbitten partner get airlifted off Mt. McKinley. He'd spent months planning a new route in the purest style, skiing 100 miles from the road to the base of the climb. Halfway to the summit, their trip ended with the failure of a simple pair of gaiters. Somewhere along the way, he realized he could fix the gear problem and devote his life to pursuing his passion for adventure. By the end, he knew one thing: He wasn't returning to his old job.


Any Fool Knows Chronicles Ron's life and his love of being outside, which eventually led him to create Outdoor Research in Seattle, WA. In 2003 Ron's life was tragically taken by an Avalanche outside of Nelson, BC. This story highlights those events, along with sending a group to the site of Ron's Death to uncover more stories about him and what we can take from Ron's passion for outdoor adventure.
