CAMP-CASSIN and Melloblocco: a great shared passion!

Also this year CAMP and CASSIN products will be one of the main actors at Melloblocco: the historical partnership continues in the name of a great shared passion!


The legacy of CAMP follows the path of innovation in climbing and mountaineering. From the first ice axe with a modular head to the first crampons with a vertical structure. From the legendary Tricam to the first hyperlight carabiner. Throughout its 125 year history, CAMP has remained dedicated to its mission of equipping alpinists and climbers with high performance gear from head to toe thereby enabling climbers to progress to the next level. That next level is visible today in light and fast ascents on huge Himalayan peaks, solo bids on big walls, and incredible onsights of the highest grades. These accomplishments are made possible by visionaries who have embraced the light & fast mentality and these are the same people who have always embraced CAMP. Our creed is lightweight because lightweight is a universal truth that applies to every adventure at any latitude and any elevation. For every kind of mountain adventure, CAMP is committed to the development of gear that spurs progress, onward and upward, and the incredible satisfaction that comes with it.

CASSIN is more than a story. CASSIN is a legend with two great protagonists: the mountain and the man. From Grandes Jorasses to Denali, places where the challenges are for real, Riccardo Cassin established some of today’s most iconic alpine routes with tools he made by himself. CASSIN is ‘alpinismo in evoluzione’ which stands for exploration in its most extreme sense, in places that exist only beyond known boundaries. This attitude puts us on the sharp end both in the mountains and in R&D where we are focused on discovering the most advanced materials and designs to help push exploration ever further. Our breakthroughs are seen anywhere you see the signature CASSIN brand stamped on a piece of gear.
