Battle Mountain 2 & 3
The golden yellow color of the Battle Mountain was requested by Chhiring Dorje Sherpa, a Big Agnes Ambassador and friend who has summited Mount Everest 16 times, to honor the Tibetan Buddhism goddess of prosperity and good fortune, Miyo Losangma. Her skin is golden yellow, so when Chhiring sets up this tent it will stand out as a tribute to her. One of Chhiring's favorite features of this tent is that he can set up the entire shelter with his gloves on.

What’s in a Name?
In August 1841, along the Snake River near the Wyoming border, sits the site of a skirmish between trappers and hostile Natives. Twenty-three trappers with a band of Shoshones withstood charges by five-hundred Cheyenne, Arapahoe, and Sioux. Even though the trappers held their own with the help of the Shoshones, they left the area shortly after. This battle gave a new name to Bastion Mountain, now known as Battle Mountain.
