En août dernier, Seb Montaz Rosset, Jordi Tosas, Vivian Bruchez et moi sommes partis en expédition en Himalaya. L’objectif : essayer d’établir un nouveau record d’ascension depuis le monastère de Rongbuk jusqu’au sommet de l’Everest, en passant par la face nord, puis retour jusqu’au point de départ. Ce défi, nous n’avons pas pu le relever, mais il nous a permis d’en apprendre beaucoup sur la montagne et l’alpinisme. Quatre ans après le lancement du projet Summits of My Life, qui nous a emmenés sur les sommets du mont Blanc, de l’Elbrouz, du Cervin et de l’Aconcagua, nous gardons l’espoir de relever un jour ce défi passionnant et de gravir...

Pourtant, quand nous étions prêts à préparer l’ascension, le temps a commencé a changer et plusieurs chutes de neige ont laissé une forte accumulation de neige. Alors, même si nous étions physiquement bien, il y avait...

¿Qué tienen en común Kilian Jornet, Gerard Quintana o Pau Garcia -Milà?A priori, son personajes de mundos totalmente diferentes. Sin embargo, todos ellos comparten una serie de valores que intentan aplicar en su día a día, ya sea la constancia, el esfuerzo, las ganas de superarse o el respeto por la naturaleza.¿Y qué saldría de una conversación entre todos ellos ?La respuesta es un enigma, pero el próximo 19 de mayo en el Palau de la Música de Barcelona se podrá comprobar. Summits of My Life crea su pequeño TEDx particular, un intercambio de ideas conducido por el periodista Xavi Coral donde se discutirá sobre sueños, sobre valores y sobre la historia de...
