Seo Haegwan, the president of Swiss outdoor brand MAMMUT Korea, has made an official contract with Bryan Hylenski, the president of KOTRi (Korea On The Rock initiatives), on June 5th.
KOTRi is a nonprofit organization consisting of expats in Korea that promote events such as Korea Rocks: The Rock Climbing Film Festival and coordination with Korean climbers and the repairing of Korean rock climbing routes. MAMMUT Korea will support KOTRi’s events and activities by being KOTRi’s official partner for the next 3 years.
Seo Haegwan, the president of MAMMUT Korea said, “I am so glad for MAMMUT Korea to help KOTRi with repairing of Korean rock climbing routes, which is their main activity. As MAMMUT Korea is a professional brand, we are going to work hard on professional climbers’ safety and capacity.”
Lee Jinhan, the Marketing Director of MAMMUT Korea said, “As we view that KOTRi’s activities are very meaningful and which coincide with MAMMUT’s spirit, we have been partially supporting them. Now, we are happy to make an official contract together.”
Further to this, Bryan is leading a Kickstarter effort to document his team's efforts to scale Janhukot, one of the last and great unclimbed mountains in the Garhwal Himalayas.
