  1. I love to share my passion for climbing with everyone I come in touch with. Climbing is everything to me and it has brought me great things in life. It has given me the opportunity to meet so many awesome people and has led me to cool places around the world. There is nothing better than traveling around and getting to climb at different places. There are so many different types of rock and various types of movements and I want to experience them all!

  2. Dean Potter is characterized by creativity, commitment and challenge. He started climbing as a child, with a free solo fall from a stone wall as one of his earliest memories. Since that time, he has speed soloed Half Dome and El Capitan, Cerro Torre, and Fitzroy. He was the first to make a one-day free ascent of El Cap and Half Dome, and a one-day speed linkup of both of those big walls and Mount Watkins, Yosemites third Grade VI wall. He has also established testpiece crack routes in the Utah desert and highball boulder problems in Yosemite. For more on Dean visit prAna.com

    Dean has walked the longest highlines, often without a safety leash, though he has dedicated over a decade of engineering and testing to create the safest highline systems currently used. Most recently, he has combined BASE jumping skill with highlining and free soloing, using a specially engineered ultralight BASE rig as his backup system.

    Dean currently bases out of Yosemite, where he can usually be found on a large piece of granite.

  5. Toni Lamprecht started climbing when he was 4 or 5 with his father on little boulders and when they hiked in the mountains. At age 12, he started to think more seriously about Alpine stuff and by the time Toni was 14 he finally discovered climbing and he turned into a self proclaimed climbing-junkie. It was all he dreamed about. Toni submersed himself in any kind of climbing he could every day (bouldering, sport or alpine). He really wanted to collect hard sport routes from all over Europe, make first ascents and tick off some of the important limestone alpine routes on the northern rim of the Alps.

    In 1992, a trip around the world changed his focus on climbing from numbers, ratings and competitions to adventure. Toni began to concentrate more on the climbing experience, the personal limits and the forces of nature. He felt fortunate that his climbing trips allowed him to visit many climbing areas in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. He feels it is important to immerse himself into the different cultures and take advantage of his opportunities.

    About that same time, Toni began to work with handicapped children and found that learning from this very special group of people gave his life a completely new source of motivation. So while still addicted to climbing, he began to focus more on his studies & teaching children. Toni finished his studies in 1999 and passed the Staatsexamen, a German government licensing examination. That was a busy year as he also released his first book, Climbing with Mentally Retarded People and began to work as a teacher for troubled kids in Munich.

    Toni has played in 3 bands, still loves adventure climbing, bouldering and finding beautiful spots for deep water soloing. He feels lucky to have been on the road for so many years always climbing with nice people. He also continues to be inspired by untouched rock in a fascinating landscape and climbing with good friends. Besides climbing, Toni likes surfing, skiing, playing music and of course spending time with his lovely wife Margit.

    Quote to live by Stay healthy and think of every climbing day as a gift.

    ~Toni Lamprecht

prAna, an ancient Sanskrit word for breath, life and vitality of the spirit, has helped guide our actions and lift our aspirations since day one.

We started out two decades ago making clothing that worked well for climbing and yoga. It turned out that the clothing worked well for lots of other passions too, so we added new products with "purpose" in mind and scoured the world for design inspiration.

What's changed since then?

Not much - and a lot. We've grown a bunch, but most of our original employees are still here. We participate with like-minded folks who want to promote conservation and create positive change, which reflects the same intention as the old days, just taken up a few notches. Organic cotton, fair trade and wind power initiatives are on the short list of what we support.

We are inspired by athletes like climber Chris Sharma - who's been with us from the beginning - and yoginis like Shiva Rea.

Looking back, we think that the name prAna fits us pretty well. Looking ahead (because we love change), we're excited to see what the future holds.

That's our story & we welcome your feedback...
