In early March 2023 Carhartt Work Wear traveled to Sandstone, Minnesota to do the photography for next year’s winter catalog.

Local climbing guide, Tony Vavricka was hired to rig safety lines for the Carhartt team and the ice climbing models. With Tony’s 30 years of climbing experience and 10 years working commercial photography in Minneapolis, Carhartt was confident that they had contacted the right person.

The photo shoot took place in Robinson Quarry, a Sandstone city park just on the edge of town. Easy access to the cliff walls played a big part in why the park was chosen for the photo shoot.

Even before the light crew showed up rigging was in place along the top catwalk above the ice routs.
