FEDERICA MINGOLLA: CARPE DIEM
From injury to climbing the “Bellavista” on the Cima Ovest di Lavaredo: a story of passion, strength and aesthetics.
A few months back, the two professional alpinists and Salewa athletes Simon Gietl and Roger Schäli set an ambitious goal. Together they plan to climb and link together the six great north faces of the Alps – non-stop and by fair means.
My Red Bull X-Alps
It’s been an eventful year for Thomas Friedrich. The 20-year-old paraglider from Graz had a dream come true this summer when he took part in the Red Bull X-Alps.

Anna Stöhr: La Résistance

As 2019 came to an end, Markus Anders, together with partner Nicolas Manthos, set off for India on a mission to discover the mountains and soar the skies above the Himalayas.
An out-of-the-ordinary Himalayan expedition
Autumn 2019 was unusual for the Himalayas. In Nepal, the best climbing seasons are post– and pre–monsoon – in other words, autumn and spring. This year, unfortunately, the monsoons persisted throughout the entire Himalayan range.
