About Fast & Light style

What is Fast & Light style? Some quotes from people who follow it...

“To go light makes it possible to move faster and to move faster allows us to go further and to do or see more in one day, it’s like a meditation for me”
Andreas Steindl

“Fast and light style means freedom, freedom of movement in the mountains”
David Goettler

 “Is the fastest, easiest and freest way to move in the mountains. It’s like being a wild animal and feeling a big connection to nature”
Jordi Tosas

  “F&L is going up and down the mountain, 100% reliant on (nearly) continuous movement for survival, security and success”
Steve House

 "L'objectiu no és subjugar la muntanya, sinó admirar-la i respectar-la. Enlloc de baixar la muntanyar al teu nivell, aspires a assolir el nivell de la muntanya. Quin valor te "conquerir" una cosa que no respectes?"
Dakota Jones
