Vertical Freedom - discover the freedom of the vertical

Mountain sports are our origin, but our passion goes beyond that. Freedom in vertical movement takes place in sports, but also in working at heights and in tree care. We use synergies so that our products benefit from our development work in all areas.

In search of new solutions, we think "out of the box" and leave well-trodden paths in favor of the best results: safe, innovative, sustainable, lightweight products.

Free movement in the vertical? Vertical Freedom? What does that actually mean? Of course, we have also dealt intensively with these questions... and also invited our athletes and partners to tell us how they experience Vertical Freedom.

The Ecopoint concept by Lena Marie Müller

To get to climbing destinations, most of us require a car. To help save the planet during the climate emer- gency, we need more eco-friendly ways of getting about to pursue our hobbies. But what impact does our sport have on our carbon footprint anyway? And what climate-friendly means of transport exist for climbers? The future could lie in a new option – the Ecopoint.

#ClimbGreen by Tommy Caldwell

These days, you’d be hard pressed to find an outdoor enthusiast who’s a climate-change denier. Perhaps because we see forests that are on fire, walk on receding glaciers and climb mountains on which the snow is thawing and the rock disintegrating. It can seem quite a gloomy outlook until you remember that an inherent characteristic of climbers is their belief in the improbable. 

Big walls, big dreams

Following your passion can mean so much: For Tommy Caldwell, being out in the mountains and climbing big walls means fun, inspiration, creativity, challenge, fear. To fail sometimes is painful and can set you back, but is part of it, motivates him, shows him weaknesses and strengths, lets him grow and develop. To be complete with himself, he must be able to rely on his equipment without doubt, because only then can he concentrate fully on his passion and climb carefree.
