Mammut Highlights Spring/summer 2008 02 14 16 20

Sleep lab: Ajungilak Altitude at –15 degrees. Trend sport: Slacklining with Stephan Siegrist. Eco-friendly: Mammut ropes. Mission Malaysia: David Lama & Co on expedition.

Absolute Alpine.

Mammut test event:

The first sleep lab at 2,700 metres altitude. Whether you’re a mountaineer, free climber, slackliner or fan of the outdoors, we’d like you to help us test our products. It’ll be a good time — we know because we’ve tested the fun factor ourselves already. Last winter 60 Mammut employees, from interns to vice presidents, settled in at 2,700 meters altitude, surrounded by ice, wind and snow, to test our newest sleeping bags. Not possible? It is.

The team did their testing in Corvatsch, high in the Bernese Alps. They snowshoed into the tundra beneath towering Piz Bernina and Piz Roseg in search of brutal winter weather. They found it. At minus 15 degrees, the mood could have gotten chilly. But everyone stayed bright and warm, even after darkness fell.


We told them the emphasis should be on sleeping. Nevertheless, some of the team turned night into day. Just as the altitude test was anything but a tired old event, our testers woke up to the comfort that Mammut sleeping bags provide. Fancy joining us next time? The next test event will take place in the summer with our customers! Register at:

Preparations for the altitude shoot.


ALTITUDE SHOOT testevent testevent

When 60 employees start the journey into the snow-covered high country with their Altitude sleeping bags it’s a unique photo opportunity. But there’s more to the photo process than just pressing a button.


Photographer Röbi Bösch was pretty demanding: “Wait, there’s snow on the rucksack! You back there, where’s your headlamp? Stop, a cloud’s hiding the moon; people lie sideways again! You two back there stop canoodling!” But in the end it was all worth it!

It’s g your Rela loye test.

Mammut down sleeping bags:

Setting the standard for a good night’s sleep. How well you climb depends on what happens the night before. If you’ve slept well, you’ll be alert enough to spot danger. That’s why Mammut is a member of European Standards Committee. We’re constantly raising safety standards and introducing them to the Committee, so you sleep better — and climb safer.

For mountaineers, indoor climbers and alpine tourers | A generous coating makes it tough

If you trust your life to a Mammut rope, you can expect uncompromising state-of-the-art safety. At 9.5 mm the Spark’s small diameter makes it the ideal rock climbing and red pointing rope. It’s light and easy to handle, with extra coating to make it extra tough.

myclimate: Eco-friendly ropes Mammut ropes are eco- friendly— we compensate for emissions generated in their production and distribution through a partnership with “my climate”, an international carbon offset initiative with Swiss roots. By helping build 500 solar greenhouses in the remote Indian Himalayas we enable people in that region to cultivate food locally, reducing emissions associated with food transport. For more info:

“Lap Coiled” – tangle-free ropes A new Mammut rope innovation: thanks to the first fully automatic “lap coiled” rope packing machine, Mammut ropes have an additional safety and usability benefit. Time-consuming rope coiling is now a thing of the past and irritating tangles are prevented from the outset. The machine features innovative coiling technology, where the ropes are not wound, but put into a figure eight using a seven-axle robotic arm. This procedure is identical to coiling ropes by hand.

The Malaysia expedition:

Mammut Pro Team en route to the Far East. 91 routes in 9 days – in Malaysia David Lama and Reini Scherer have covered two completely new areas in just one week – including ascents of the three most difficult routes in Asia. The wealthy sultanate of Perlis is now two climbing routes richer and the bolting crew about 1,000 bolts poorer. Take a look at Reini’s travel journal at



Karl Unterkircher in Guinness Book of World Records:

Travel journal at

Mammut climber, Karl Unterkircher, was the first climber to conquer K2 and Mount Everest in six weeks. Without oxygen. But his other records will really take your breath away. These include no less than 40 first ascents of major mountaineering objectives – including three in the last two years: G 2 north face and Jasemba in 2007 and Mt. Genyen in 2006. And these are definitely not the last records that this extreme mountaineer, ice climber and skier will be attempting …
