INTRODUCING ANDREJ AND MARIJA ŠTREMFELJ.

The Štremfeljs need no introduction in Slovenia, nor to mountaineering enthusiasts around the world, nevertheless we briefly list the major achievements of Andrej and Marija.  Alles Mooi are proud that they have tested, proven and converted to our mohair socks.

🇸🇮 Zakonca Štremfelj ne potrebujeta posebne predstavitve, ne v Sloveniji, niti v svetovnem svetu gorskih/alpinističnih navdušencev. Kljub temu na kratko omenimo njune največje dosežke. V podjetju Alles Mooi smo ponosni, da sta Andrej in Marija uporabila, preverila in se »spreobrnila« k našim nogavicam izdelanih iz moherja.

FIRST ASCENT.

In 1979 Andrej made the first ascent of the West Ridge Direct on Everest (8848 m). Mount Everest attracts many climbers. There are two main climbing routes, one approaching the summit from the southeast in Nepal (standard route) and the other from the north in Tibet. 

🇸🇮 Leta 1979 se je Andreju prvič uspelo povzpeti na vrh Mount Everesta (8848m). Najvišji vrh na svetu privlači mnoge alpiniste. Do vrha vodita dve glavni poti. Prva vodi po jugovzhodni strani iz Nepala (standardna pot), druga iz Tibeta, po severni strani.

Outdoor footwear criteria: Climb lighter.

One pair of mohair socks is all you need for a week of climbing.  Mohair is naturally anti-microbial, resisting odours and keeping feet and socks fresh for days.

🇸🇮 Lažji nahrbtnik? Par moher nogavic je vse, kar potrebujete za večdnevni izlet v hribe. Kako je to mogoče? Moher nogavice so naravno anti-mikrobne, odvajajo vonjave in vlago ter ohranjajo nogavice in stopala sveža več dni.

FIRST MARRIED COUPLE TO SUMMIT EVEREST.

In 1990 Andrej and Marija became the first married couple to stand together on the summit of Everest.  Their ascent was on the Normal route, while not posing substantial technical climbing challenges on the standard route, Everest presents dangers such as, weather, altitude sickness and wind, as well as significant hazards from avalanches. Over 300 people have died on Everest and many of their bodies remain on the mountain.

🇸🇮 Leta 1990 sta Andrej in Marija postala prvi zakonski par na svetu, ki se je skupaj povzpel na vrh Mount Everesta. Povzpela sta se po stradardni poti, ki vsebinsko ne predstavlja prezahtevnih plezalnih izzivov. Kljub temu pa se alpinisti na poti soočijo z neprizanesljivimi vremenskimi razmerami, gorsko slabostjo in pogostimi gorskimi plazovi. Vse to predstavlja veliko nevarnost za življenje, kar potrjuje dejstvo, da je pri vzponu na Mount Everest umrlo že preko 300 ljudi.

Outdoor footwear criteria: No sweaty feet.

The capillary nature of mohair carries moisture along the vein of the fibre and out through the pores, absorbing and wicking perspiration away from the foot.

🇸🇮 Brez potnih nog. Kapilarna struktura moher vlaken odvaja vlago stran od stopal. Vlaga se  absorbira in se preko vlakenskih žil izloča iz vlaken.

FIRST ALPINE STYLE ASCENT.

In 1991 Andrej together with Marko Prezelj completed an alpine style ascent of the South Ridge of Kangchenjunga to the South summit (8476 m). This climb awarded them with the first ever Piolet d’Or.

🇸🇮 Leta 1991 je Andrej skupaj z Markom Prezljem opravil alpinistični vzpon od južnega grebena Kangčendzenge na njen južni vrh (8476m). Skupaj sta si priplezala prvi Piolet d’or oz. Zlati cepin. Zlati cepin je alpinistična nagrada in velja za najprestižnejšo alpinistično priznanje. Nagrado se podeljuje za najodmevnejše alpinistične dosežke preteklega leta.

Kangchenjunga is the 3rd highest mountain in the world in a section of the Himalayas, and lies between Nepal and Sikkim.  Kangchenjunga was assumed to be the highest mountain in the world, but the Great Trigonometrical Survey of India in 1849 concluded that Mount Everest was the highest.  Following further verification it was officially announced in 1856 that Kangchenjunga was the third highest mountain in the world.

🇸🇮 Kangčendzenga je tretja najvišja gora na svetu. Leži v himalajskem gorstvu med Nepalom in Skiimom. Sprva je bilo rečeno, da je Kangčendzenga najvišji vrh na svtu, vendar je leta 1849 velika trigonometrična analiza Indije razkrila, da to mesto dejansko pripada Mount Everestu. Kasnejše raziskave so leta 1856 uradno umestile Kangčendzengo na tretje mesto.

Outdoor footwear criteria: No blisters.

The smooth cuticle structure of the mohair fibre gives a smooth surface which reduces chaffing.

🇸🇮 Brez žuljev. Moher vlakna imajo izjemno nežno povrhnjico, kar zagotavlja gladko površino, ki zmanjšuje trenje med nogavico in kožo.

ULTIMATE MOUNTAINEERING RECOGNITION.

In 2009, the first Lifetime Achievement Piolet d’Or was awarded to Walter Bonatti.  His style of mountaineering perfectly reflected the spirit of thePiolets d’Or.  He became a sort of godfather to those who would receive this award after him. In honour of the man and his spirit, it has been renamed the “Piolet d’Or Lifetime Achievement, Walter Bonatti Award”.

🇸🇮 Leta 2009 si je Walter Bonatti prislužil prvo nagrado Piolet d’Or za življensko delo. Njegov alpinistični stil, odnos in strast, predstavljajo popoln primer osebnosti, ki ga poosebljajo nagrajenci Poilet d’Or-ja za življensko delo. Bonatti je postal navdih vsem kasnejšim nagrajencem. V čast njegove osebnosti se je nagrada Poilet d’Or preimenovala v »Piolet d’Or, nagrada Walterja Bonnatija«.

In 2018 Andrej Štremfelj received the Piolet d’Or Lifetime Achievement award.  One mountaineer is awarded each year (since 2009).

🇸🇮 Leta 2018 je Andrej Štremfelj, kot prvi in edini Slovenec do sedaj,  prejel Piolet d’Or oz. Zlati cepin za življensko delona področju alpinizma.

The Career Piolets d’Or was created to reward a career where the spirit has inspired the following generations, in the sense of criteria set down by the convention.

Outdoor footwear criteria: No cold or hot feet.

The thermoregulation properties of mohair are superior to any other sock fibre.

🇸🇮  Ne mrzla in ne vroča stopala. Termoregulacijske lastnosti moher vlaken zagotavljajo ugodje v vseh letnih časih in s svojimi lastnostmi nadvladajo prav vse druge materiale.

MOUNTAIN GUIDES.

The Šremfeljs have been mountain guides since 1982.  (IFMGA licensed since 1997).  After only 10 minutes of meeting with Andrej and Marija it felt like we had known them for years.  That speaks volumes about their humility. They spend much of their time above the clouds yet you could never hope to meet a couple more down to earth than the Šremfeljs.  When embarking on an adventure make it a complete experience; meaning choosing a mountain guide with the highest competences and experience; and the passion to share their rich experiences openly.

🇸🇮 Zakonca Štremfelj sta gorska vodnika že od leta 1982 (IFMGA mednarodno licenco sta pridobila 1997). Ko sem prvič spoznal Andreja in Marijo, sem se že po desetih minutah počutil, kot da jih poznam že desetletje. Oba preživita neskončno veliko časa tam nekje visoko med oblaki, pa vendar sta najbolj prizemljena in prijetna človeka, kar sem jih kadarkoli spoznal. Ko se pripravljate na novo gorsko avanturo, poskrbite za popolno izkušnjo; pomeni, izberite gorskega vodnika z največ kompetencami in izkušnjami ter strastjo in željo, da svoje izkušnje nesebično deli z vami.

Outdoor footwear criteria:  Cleaner, germ fighting.

The smooth fibre structure of mohair prevents the buildup of bacteria, and together with the natural wick-ability, allows your feet to breathe and socks to remain fresh for days without washing.

🇸🇮 5x čistejša. Brez mikrobov. Gladka struktura moher vlaken preprečuje nalaganje bakterij in odvaja vlago na naraven način, omogoča dihanje stopal ter ohranja nogavice sveže, brez potrebe po pranju, tudi po večkratni uporabi.

SLOVENIA.

Outdoor adventuring enthusiasts visiting Slovenia in the summer months should consider climbing Triglav (2864 m), the highest peak in the Julian Alps and the highest mountain in Slovenia.  Triglav was also the highest peak in Yugoslavia before Slovenia’s independence in 1991. The mountain is the pre-eminent symbol of the Slovene nation.  Slovenes say that only Slovene citizens who have climbed Triglav can truly call themselves Slovene.  In 2008 I was privileged to join Jeff Vestal of the American Military Attache to Slovenia on this climb.

🇸🇮 Gorski navdušenci, ki vsako leto obiščejo Slovenijo, morajo resno razmisliti o vzponu na Triglav (2864m). Triglav je najvišji vrh Julijskih alp ter najvišja gora v Sloveniji. Do leta 1991, preden se je Slovenija osamosvojila, mu je pripadalo prvo mesto za najvišji vrh v Jugoslaviji. Vzpon na Triglav je eden izmed »simbolov« slovenstva. Govori se, da samo Slovenec, ki se je povzpel na vrh Triglava, lahko reče, da je pravi Slovenec. Leta 2008 sem imel priložnost in čast, da sem skupaj z ameriškim vojaškim atašejem v Sloveniji, Jeffom Vestalom, osvojil Triglav.

Triglav mountain is the centrepiece of Triglav National Park (Slovenia’s only national park).

🇸🇮 Triglav je center Triglavskega narodnega parka, edinega narodnega parka v Sloveniji.

Outdoor footwear criteria: Lasts 5x longer.

Mohair is the most durable animal fibre because it is pliable rather than solid and can be bent and twisted without damage.

🇸🇮 5x daljša življenska doba. Moher vlakno je najbolj trpežno vlakno živalskega izvora, ker je upogljivo in ne togo, se lahko zvija in prepogiba brez poškodb za vlakna.
