C.A.M.P. (Conception of Articles for Mountaineering Made in Premana) was formed in 1889 high in the mountains of Premana, Italy 103 years after the first ascent of Mont Blanc. At that time, Nicola Codega – the grandfather of the current owners - was a blacksmith producing a wide range of products from wrought iron like cutting implements and bells. Manufacturing of alpine and mountaineering equipment did not begin until 30 years later when the founders son, Antonio Codega, began production of a new item for alpine use: the ice axe. Over the next 50 years, C.A.M.P. went on to develop not only ice axes, but new items such as crampons, hammers, pitons and nuts.
Today, in the 21st century, CAMP makes the lightest piece of gear in nearly every category they sell in. Popular examples include the Nano 23 carabiner (the lightest carabiner in the world) and the Corsa ice axe (also the lightest in the world). So, if you know any climbers who need to lighten up their racks or their packs, be sure to point them towards CAMP.
