A few months ago, Andrea contacted us, and this was the beginning of a beautiful collaboration. A project that inspired both EP and Petzl teams to come up with a unique project. But who is Andrea?
Andréa is a human project, unusual and strong, carried by two passionate people; Nina Caprez, a world-class Swiss climber, and Jeremy Bernard, a French outdoor photographer.
Andrea's mission is to explore, meet, and share through sports, often of the extreme kind.
To make their dream come true, Nina and Jérémy bought a Mercedez Benz Unimog U2150 truck (called Andréa)
The truck is oversized, but indispensable for pacing the roads, going to places in the world that are sometimes remote, and, above all, being able to support a climbing wall to bringing Climbing to Everyone!
EP Team is proud of this project. For more than 35 years, we are working hard on our projects and we truly believe that climbing is a complete and human sport.
A project like Andrea is gold, and reach out to isolated, sometimes underprivileged populations to share the values of climbing with them is totally in accordance with our desire of bringing climbing to all.
We would like to thank Nina and Jeremy as well as Petzl for the work we did together on the design and the conception of the climbing wall and mats for Andrea.
