Brinox - proud sponsor of the mountaineer Marko Prezelj, recipient of the fourth Piolet d’Or award

Sora, 25 March 2016 - One of this year’s recipients of the Piolet d’Or, the greatest global award for mountaineering achievements, is also our Marko Prezelj, who, together with Urban Novak, Haydn Kennedy and Manu Pellissier, ascended the difficult eastern face of Cerro Kishtwar (6173 m), a prominent mountain peak in the Indian Kashmere. Brinox has been supporting Marko’s extraordinary mountaineering achievements since 2001.

Marko Prezelj is now the only mountaineer in the world to be awarded the “Piolet d’Or” for his mountaineering achievements for the fourth time. He received his first Piolet d’Or in 1991 when he climbed the south pillar of Kangchendzonga (8476 m) with Andrej Štremfelj, in 2007 he received the Piolet d’Or together with Boris Lorenčič for a new route in the pillar of Chomolhari (7326 m) in 2006, and last year with Aleš Česen and Luka Lindič for a new route to Hagshu (6657 m) in 2014.

In this way, the Slovenian mountaineers marked the twenty-four-year history of the prestigious mountaineering award as many as seven times.

“The comparison of mountain ascents cannot be objective. When the ascent is completed, the broader international committee only assesses the stories told by the mountaineers themselves. These stories are a mere approximation of our experiences during the climbing. It is as if we made a fire when we climb, and the public would then only mix the ashes and talk with enthusiasm about the flames which are gone,” Marko remains humble despite all his achievements, and adds: “I am happy for the successful cooperation with Brinox that has been lasting for almost fifteen years now. I know the reason is that we share the same basic values, which are important for a good ascent as well as for the manufacturing of a really high-quality industrial product.  I hope that my photos of products by Brinox also contribute to the success of sales.”
