Hoy hemos asistido a la presentación del libro de José Mari Azpiazu y Sebastián Álvaro "La vida al límite de la vida". Además del proyecto sobre conferencias de montaña que nos han presentado en la Universidad Católica de Valencia en el cual @salewa y @ventsdemuntanya tienen participación directa.
Me gustan estas fotos donde se aprecia la pequeñez y fragilidad del escalador con respecto a lo que le rodea. Va pasando el otoño, descansando y disfrutando de días de monte y escalada en los preciosos y solitarios rincones que tiene Cantabria. Gracias @santarock_nature por la foto.
🇬🇧 I like these photos where you can see the fragility of the climber comparing with the things that surrounds him. The autumn is passing, resting and enjoying mountain and climbing days in the beautiful region of Cantabria. Thanks @santarock_nature for the photo.
¡¡ WELCOME TO MY WORLD !! 🌍
Aquí mostraré mis diferentes aventuras en la naturaleza (montaña ⛰ río 🏞 mar 🌊). Espero que os guste lo que veáis 👀 y poco a poco vayamos siendo más 👫👬👭
Este selfie 📸 me lo hice en la vía ferrata de la Hermida, es una travesía super chula 💥 además un punto a favor ✔ es que está adaptada a varios niveles pudiendo abandonar la actividad en varios puntos de su recorrido. Si decidimos continuar hacia el más complicado tenemos la opción de cruzar un puente mono 🐒 y otro tibetano (para los más atrevidos 🤸♀️) ya os enseñaré fotitos 😉
...it’s all about the chapstick.
Waking up at high camp amongst the buzz of other teams laying out ropes and brewing coffee, praying for a motionless ridge, hands deep in puffy-jacket pockets, waiting for the sun to expose the upper reaches of Denali Pass...it’s a habitual process, but all new. It was as surreal as reading a book, closing your eyes, and poof! ...happening right there.
Though many moments come to mind from this expedition, none have left a more lasting effect than a shift in my internal priorities. A deep, cleansing sense of purpose and the moment to moment living is born through time spent in remote places, yet, slowly erupt into an overflowing exchange amongst other inhabitants. It’s infectious...
And though it’s easy to stunt or hide reality day-to-day, the moments here brought me to a level of awareness I had never experienced before. Soft and hard skills were being balanced, adaptation and normality was arising to keep focus and the unique culture made the progressive transition from obvious tasks to “just being”...
So, I made it a goal to take a picture every morning to see how my body (beyond a perceived notion) responded to altitude, sun, wind, snow and the overall environment. To see a permanent mirror of how I was shedding, inside out. -
This was from June 28, 2018, at 17,200 feet, after a successful 17 hour summit day to the top of North America.
I am ever grateful for this moment...the sunburn, the frozen snot, the puffiness, the grateful exhaustion and I can’t wait to get back to the raw element of it all.
@mountainclimbgrace, I owe you a lifetime of lip balm.
Pere, Spanish IFGMA guide and #ExploreShare member, is quite a legend in Europe and in South America! He spends half the year in between Barcelona and Chamonix, and the other half in the Chilean Patagonia
He helped developing many climbing and mountaineering routes both on the Argentine and Chilean sides of the Andes, and is now based in Cerro Castillo. He will love to show you around this unspoiled Patagonian region in between October and March, or guide you in any of the classic lines in the Alps during the European summer!
He is a true expert, but also one of the coolest guys around. Get in touch with Pere by clicking the link in our bio, and enjoy an unforgettable trip!
Almost over! Slowly getting ready to leave manali- all rested and clean shaved- on the way to Delhi and than home. We both feel extremely fortunate with our ascent- a reliable weather forecast forced us to push through a narrow weather window to manage our ascent in 14 days manali-manali. It all wouldn’t have been possible without the great support from our friends! @ravithakur.manali from #himalayancaravanadventure and @negi8938 thank you again! our long term support from @ulrichgroeber and @may_lebedeinensport was a big moving force behind our expedition and above all: our home base team @mountains_heidi.harder and @mikhalsaar who gave us the go ahead consent- it’s not easy to stay alone with small kids, we appreciate it so much! So we conclude our FA of Ghode ka kann (horse’s ear) 5,494m. V, M5, AI4, 5C, 1,300m. Thank you India for leaving us with the wish to go back and explore some more! So many things to see and do! #mountainguide @weguideyou @mountains_mountaineeringschool
