Michael “Much” Mayr returns from Ethiopia

Ethiopia is one of the cradles of modern humanity and has plenty more to offer than just history and culture. The diverse landscape of the Ethiopian Highlands, offering a wide range of rock formations, makes Ethiopia an interesting destination for climbers as well. But why choose a country where hardly any areas have yet been opened up and very little is known about the quality of the rock climbing? For SKYLOTEC athlete Michael “Much” Mayr and his climbing partner Hansjörg Auer, it was a mixture of curiosity and a thirst for adventure. The idea came about after listening to the stories of a friend, who had adopted a child from the region years ago and was always raving about the impressive sandstone mountains. Also, the climate in the Ethiopian Highlands still allows for activities in the sun in March, which can never be taken for granted in Africa – not without reason as it is home to the hottest place on the planet.

Precautionary Inspection Check of SKYLOTEC Via Ferrata Sets

Neuwied 29 May 2018 – The brand SKYLOTEC stands for the highest safety in industry and mountain sport and guarantees this through high standards and regular internal tests. In the critical area of via ferrata sets in particular, we aim to offer the “safest via ferrata set on the market” since we launched the “RIDER” and our quality controls at SKYLOTEC are accordingly stringent. During the routine quality check of the last batch of the SKYSAFE carabiner, we noticed that its break values are scattered, even though the hardness tests exhibited no deviations. During an enhanced sampling, erratic values were even determined in a range that is no longer standard-compliant/safety-relevant. Read more
