In April 2004, I visited the CAMP (Costruzioni Articoli Montagna Premana) factory in Premana, Italy, a small town northeast of Lecco. This family-owned company has been making climbing equipment since 1920 and remains one of the best-known brands. My article for SNEWS gives more details. It also has one of the best restaurants you will ever eat at — truly amazing food — tucked away in an obscure hotel nearby.
