Royal Robbins

Royal Robbins commitment to the environment and social responsibility stems from our origins and extends to all aspects of our business.

Royal Robbins and his wife Liz were iconic Sierra Nevada rock climbers during the 1960s. They belonged to a progressive band of climber/philosophers who pioneered the term “clean climbing”: a set of practices and techniques that enabled them to climb big walls with little or no damage to the rock, a literal representation of their lived ethos of deep respect for the natural world.  With that foundation of conservation and our successful business comes the responsibility to contribute positively to society on a global scale as well as in our backyards.
