WOP Foundation Prize to the defence and transmission of the social values of alpinism
This award acknowledges the defence and transmission of the social values of mountaineering. Values such as improvement, effort, and teamwork; loyalty and optimism as force for change; knowing how to combine every activity related to mountaineering, climbing or extreme sports with family life... In short, it somehow rewards the vital passion for the mountain.
