Gronell on the K2 with Cristina Piolini

Gronell on the K2 with Cristina Piolini

Do you remember Cristina Piolini?

A researcher in Nepal, an 'extreme' mountaineer and a lifelong mountain enthusiast: Cristina has been our brand ambassador for years (read her interview with Gronell here), and she still carries our boots with her on her adventures around the world.

Adventures to which a great new project is about to be added.

In honour of the 70th anniversary of the first Italian ascent of K2 (which took place in 1954), Cristina will set off with an all-female expedition to climb the second highest mountain on Earth: 4 Italian and 4 Pakistani mountaineers will join forces to retrace exactly that same path, which led our mountaineers to plant the Italian and Pakistani flags for the first time at an altitude of 8,611 metres.

The aim is also to send a very powerful message: to encourage women all over the world, especially those from Pakistan, to have a dream, to pursue it, to not be afraid of challenges and to overcome themselves to find freedom.

And we could not be more honoured and proud to be alongside Cristina and her team on this adventure!
