In December 2019, the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage met in Bogotá (Colombia) and decided to inscribe Alpinism on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity of UNESCO.

For Grivel, alpinism is the “founding father”. It inspires us on new products and it makes our heart beat.
We want to celebrate this historical achievement with a series of videos to share some of the emotions that alpinism can convey, to all of us, alpinists and non-alpinists alike. To make you dream!
Alpinism is made of many activities, on rocky or icy terrain, involving physical, technical and intellectual abilities, using appropriate techniques, equipment and highly specific tools.
With each episode, we want to celebrate a particular activity within the realm of alpinism.
Here is “Episode 1: Mountaineering”, filmed in October 2019. #stayhome and enjoy!
