  1. 16-year-old French phenom Enzo Oddo has climbed yet another 5.15 with his repeat of La Rambla original in Siurana, Spain. The route was first climbed before Oddo was even born by Alex Huber to a stopping point 3/4 up the wall, and it was subsequently extended by Ramón Julián Puigblanque. The accepted grade for this route these days seems to be 5.15a, but Rock and Ice has a good recap of this history of the route including Huber’s thoughts on how the grade of this route and many others has been inflated over the years:

    “It’s a fact that La Rambla increased in grade from 8c+ (5.14c) to 9a+ (5.15a). Often people believe this is due to the route extension, but in reality the difficulties do not change substantially with this extension.”

  2. French climber Alizée Dufraisse has repeated the climb Patinoso (5.14c) in Siurana, Spain. According to ukclimbing.com, she was aiming to climb the route Chikane, an 80-foot 5.14c in the Campi Qui Pugui sector. She instead redpointed Patinoso, a 130-foot endurance route in the El Pati sector. This is Dufraisse's first of the grade; previously, she had climbed two 5.14b's, including l'Arcadémicien in Céüse in 2010—a 5.14b established by Sylvain Millét that had not seen a repeat since a hold broke on the route.

  3. L’Arcadémicien des Crépis is a really hard route old style, technical and mentally hard. Everything natural in demi lune sector of Ceüse. It took a lot of time for me, but I really wanted to do it so I did it! ~Alizée Dufraisse

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.

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...
