After 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic heavily impacted international mobility, 2021 saw increased activity, despite ongoing restrictions. As a result, in 2022, the international jury consisted of Conrad Anker, Alex Bluemel, Genki Narumi, Paul Ramsden, Patrick Wagnon, and Mikel Zabalza selected two 2022 Piolet d’Or ascents – alpinism's highest honour: the first ascent of Saraghar Northwest in Pakistan, and the Moonwalk Traverse in Patagonia. Also, a special jury award was given to a Ukrainian team's ascent of the 24,780-foot Annapurna III in Nepal.
