Les Piolets d'Or

Conference

More than just the recognition of a performance, the Piolets d'Or celebrates passion, spirit and values.

The spirit of the Piolets d’Or draws its inspiration from the history of alpinism and the authenticity of true team spirit.

The style should take precedence over the conquest of an objective. Success is no longer about getting to the summit at all costs, employing all possible financial and technical means, (oxygen, fixed ropes, doping products, etc) or large-scale human resources (high-altitude porters or sherpas).
The Piolets d’Or event encourages imagination in searching for innovative routes using a maximum of economy of means, making use of experience and respecting man and nature.
The Piolets d’Or is attached to making climbing a shared and valued richness all over the world, capable of attracting the best of human ambitions whilst encompassing moral values and edifying behaviour.
The Piolets d'Or event is therefore a celebration of an ethical alpinism, rich in emotion.
