  1. Enzo Oddo, prAna’s youngest ambassador (15 years old) climbed the Bishop California highball named Ambrosia. The beautiful line on the South face of the Grandpa Peabody boulder was put up by Kevin Jorgeson. Enzo’s ascent was the 4th time the boulder was topped out.

    A route climber for most of his long, illustrious career, Enzo traveled from his home in France to land on California soil February 1st. His first real bouldering trip, he plans to spend the entire month traveling around the Eastern Sierras enjoying the incredible landscape and world class bouldering.

  2. The Receptionist is one of the most classic roof climbs in the country. It is located on the Mars Roof in Flagstaff, Arizona, and is one of five established V10+ climbs on the boulder. At 6000 feet elevation, this highly pocketed limestone roof is pumpy and sequential. I sent this problem just one day after sending both Cosmic Tricycle sit (V10) and The Black Hole (V10) both featured in "The Spree".

  3. The Le Conte boulder, also known as the House Keeping boulder, is in Yosemite Valley, California. For more than a decade, I'd been trying to figure out the proudest, tallest line on the block, with no luck.

    One day, I was playing with my sister Jenny's kids, Cyrus and Dahlia, in the forest amongst the rocks. They were acting all whacky, wild and uninhibited, jumping and bouncing around from rock to rock and scampering up trees. I had been trying this sick line on the boulder but never figured out the crux move in all the years before. Somehow the kids, 'anything is possible' energy drifted into me. I stood before the starting bucket giggling. I was loose and moved my body in a different way than ever before. To my amazement, I stuck the crux with my nine-year-old nephew and my 7-year-old niece spotting me. I jumped down, careful not to squish them and finally believed I would send this lifetime project within my next few efforts.

    King Air is one of the most obvious boulder problems around. For years I tried the problem alone, somehow keeping it completely secret. My bro, Ivo Ninov and I worked on it together. We kept our efforts stealth by washing off the chalk with water before leaving for the night. For years, I doubt anyone else ever seriously looked at the bold line as it was too high and there wasn't any chalk to lead them. Ivos enthusiasm literally lifted me higher and higher. On every serious attempt he spotted me, making sure that at least I wouldn’t split my melon.

    This is the proudest highball boulder problem I know of in the Valley. The business scales over 30 feet to the final bucket. Its on the verge of being a free solo. When I fell my feet traveled 20 feet before impacting the pads. I was lucky not to shatter bones. My quads were very sore and I limped around for the next few days. King Air is the most beautiful boulder problem Ive ever done. You would be hard pressed to find any line, more aesthetic.

  4. Je suis né dans une famille de grimpeurs
    Mon arrière grand-père et mon grand-père étaient guide de haute montagne. Décédés en montagne, ils reposent dans le cimetière de Chamonix. Mon arrière grand-mère et ma grand-mère grimpaient déjà à Fontainebleau et mes parents et ma soeur sont aussi grimpeurs. L'escalade c'est un peu une histoire de famille !
    J'ai débuté l'escalade en 2004, d'abord dans le cadre familial puis au sein du club Grimp'Azur de Nice. Tout de suite j'ai été attiré par l'escalade en milieu naturel. J'adore les voies courtes de résistance. Réussir un mouvement extrême, juste à ma limite est une sensation démente. J'essaie quand même d'être le plus polyvalent possible.

    Le 22 Février 1995 à Nice, France.
    Lieu de résidence
    Nice, mais pas souvent...
    Mes falaises favorites
    Margalef en Espagne, le Frankenjura en Allemagne et Ceüse en France.
    En bloc
    Fontainebleau est incontournable. Pour l'instant je ne connais pas beaucoup d'autre site de bloc, mais cela devrait changer vite.
    Mes plus beaux blocs
    Les fourmis rouges, L'insoutenable légèreté de l'autre, Le mur des lamentations à fontainebleau.
    Mes King Line
    Biographie/Realization (Ceüse), Victima del futur (Margalef), Trip Tik Tonic (Deversé).
    Mes grande voie
    Je n'ai pas encore fais de grande voie, dure en tout cas. Je garde un super souvenir de Dingomaniaque au Verdon.
    Un film
    The big Lebowski. "Si t'as pas connu le Vietnam..."
    Une musique
    Dr Dre. Le son qui claque à l'américaine !
    Un livre
    "Le koala tueur" de Kenneth Cook.
    Un mantra
    "Il n'y a pas d'essai de trop, juste des essais de plus." (JB Tribout).

  5. I embrace yoga as a universal path as well as traditional teachings and practices to cultivate and realize our full potential. Vinyasa is a natural sequence unfolding with creative intelligence - a conscious evolution connecting each moment with unifying breath. We explore embodying and living yoga in full spectrum - sun to moon, wild to sublime, fullness to simplicity, action and being. There is yoga for everyone.

    Light the fire "Savor the Juice...Expand the Heart Field"
    May all beings flourish and peace prevail on earth...
    Om Shanti

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...
