Tendon promotes active mountaineering which is not only a sport, philosophy or life style, but in addition represents the unrestrained forces of nature that stream across all senses of anyone who wants to know oneself through mountain climbing.

Tendon is not satisfied with standard solutions but tries to find the best solutions – we continue improving reliability and functionality of equipment for mountaineering, works at height as well as professional work of rescue teams.

Tendon does not stick in one place and does not only monitor technological development, but is an active part of research and development in the field of mountaineering, work at height and (unclear over free depth), rescue activities, and work of height specialists.
