The Petzl story begins in caves. Here, company founder Fernand Petzl is shown with Georges Garby and Claudine Leconte in the Gouffre Berger cave, which was discovered in 1953. Fernand would go on to lead expeditions into this massive cave system on the Sornin plateau in the Vercors Mountains. In 1956, he lead an international team of cavers to a record-breaking depth of -1,122 meters.
