Jordi Tosas is an alpinist and a mountain guide.
What is F&L style for you?
The fastest, easiest and freest way to move around the mountains, the closest way to be a wild animal. It is about feeling as connected as possible to nature, that technology helps me but does not deprive me of this contact.
Which are the values of this style for you?
The commitment to want to merge with the mountain, when you're looking for the purest way and the most beautiful way to stay in the mountains. It is a way of finding beauty in simplicity.
How does it make you feel?
Absolute freedom, everything depends on me, it makes me feel like a child discovering my possibilities.
Which was the first summit you did following this style?
From a very young age I have enjoyed the mountain in this way. The first experience was perhaps running up the Aiguille de Toule, France, with my colleague Joan Solà.
How does F&L style influence your relationship with mountains?
My relationship with the mountain is polarized, on the one hand there is absolute freedom, I only depend on myself and on how well can I do it and on the other hand there is the commitment, the freer I am the more committed I am with the security in the mountains. I have to prepare a lot and be very clear about what I do to remain free.
