Roger Schäli visiting Exped headquarters in Zurich. 

Six spectacular north faces, three countries and a lot of pasta - the North6 project will certainly remain in Roger Schäli's and Simon Gietl's memories for a long time. Two weeks after the last summit attempt, Roger talked to us about challenges, highlights and his friendship with Simon, among other things.

Exped friend and brand ambassador Roger Schäli has once again achieved a spectacular feat with his North6 project, together with Tyrolean alpinist Simon Gietl! Roger comments: "For me, this was probably my most beautiful mountaineering experience"!

Exped has stood for high-quality, high-performance and robust outdoor products since 1983. To guarantee this quality, we need not only well-trained but also motivated employees in our partner factories. We have been working with most of our suppliers and factories for over ten years. This consistency is fundamental for sustainable development. We visit all the factories regularly and maintain an intensive exchange on an equal footing. But this year everything is different.

On 31 July, She is outdoors presented awards for the first time – specifically for outdoor sports products for women. Among the winners is an Exped product, the new Ultra 3R Mat.

After Exped revolutionised the sleeping mat market years ago with the DownMat, we are now setting an example in terms of sustainable production. From 2021 onwards, all mats will be CO2 offset with Myclimate. This makes our mats the only and first climate-neutral ones on the market.

His passion is the mountains and he has climbed the famous Eiger North Face more than 50 times - now the well-known professional mountaineer Roger Schäli is Exped brand ambassador. As a Swiss all-round alpinist and above all as a person, Roger has been a friend to the Exped team for a long time. It's only logical that this has now finally led to a closer collaboration.

It is the highest mountain in the Karakoram and the second highest on earth after Mount Everest. K2 fascinates mountaineers all over the world. It is the last 8000 peak on earth that has not been summited in winter! Tamara wants to change that now. 

Our friend, Graham, has been working with Protect Our Winters (POW) as an advocate for climate change awareness. An Imperfect Advocate is a film about his journey as an athlete-turned-activist.

Tsering Dolma Gurung (54) and her husband Silnon live primarily off their own agricultural activities. Three daughters attend the local school; the eldest daughter, however, is needed to help run the household. The family's most important possessions: sheep, yaks and horses - and now a greenhouse. A meaningful project, we believe and have financed 1 of 12 greenhouses and donated an ORION II EXTREME
