Benjamin Védrines - Alpiniste did an incredible speed ascent on his 1st 8000er, Broad Peak. He's a young but highly experienced alpinist, paraglider pilot, trail runner; I interviewed him not being interested to the "record" but to understand his inner motivation and to ask him about the worst part of his expedition. He told me that instead of being satisfied after Broad Peak speed ascent and paraglider descent, he wanted more. The "hubris", as Greek philosophers teached us, could lead a man to risk too much. "I lived the dream on Broad Peak and the nightmare on K2. It allowed me to see my limits. But also the limits of high altitude without oxygen. It’s a very dangerous place, especially for people like me who want to go fast."Read the full story on Climbing Magazine :www.climbing.com/news/interview-benjamin-vedrines-himalaya-speed-ascent/(ph Benjamin on BP summit with K2 behind him) #8000ers #karakorum #montagnamagicaweb #alpinestyle #alpinismo #alpinism #climbing #broadpeak #speedclimbing #paraalpine #paragliding ...

Sadly, after two days, the body of Hilaree Nelson, fallen while descending on ski from Manaslu summit, was spotted and a helicopter is going to take her down.Hilaree was one of the best extreme skiers in the World and an accomplished climber.She was 49 years old. With her partner Jim Morrison she skied the steep Lhotse colouir in 2018: she summited both Everest and Lhotse in 24 hours in 2012 and she skied down Cho Oyu in 2005. Jim Morrison was descending with her when tragedy occurred but he couldn't help Hilaree. He's safe at Base Camp. Condolences to her family and loved ones. #8000ers #montagnamagicaweb #alpinestyle #alpinismo #alpinism #Himalaya #climbing #extremeskiing #hilareenelson ... See MoreSee Less

The dangerous climbers traffic jam on Manaslu, with hundreds of them stuck on fixed ropes queues, was a tragic signal in last days, where avalanches were filmed and spotted by Sherpas.Today, an avalanche killed two climbers, injured a dozen of them, disrupted the ropes on high camps; rescue are blocked by weather and difficult terrain.Another terrible news is the disappearance of Hilaree Nelson, the strong skier and climber has fallen, near the summit zone, in a deep crevasse, while descending by ski. #8000ers #montagnamagicaweb #alpinismo #alpinism #Himalaya #climbing #manaslu #avalanche ...

Colin Haley, Alpinist did the first Fitz Roy Supercanaleta route winter ascent, solo !He wrote:"Last Monday (Sept. 19) I completed a climbing goal that had been on my mind for the past 9 years: to solo Fitz Roy in winter by the Supercanaleta. It was a very intense experience that leveraged the total skillset I have built up over the past 22 years of climbing and alpinism. The climb and descent left me wasted physically, mentally, and psychologically. Being alone on the summit of Fitz Roy in winter, at night, felt very, very far away from everything.

Why @patagonia brand is well respected? Because his founder is a truly remarkable visionary and his philosophy on how a global company must be run is truly unique. And today we learn the final step of Mr. Yvon Chouinard :"According to the New York Times, “Mr. Chouinard, his wife, and two adult children have transferred their ownership of Patagonia, valued at about $3 billion, to a specially designed trust and a nonprofit organization.”“Hopefully this will influence a new form of capitalism that doesn’t end up with a few rich people and a bunch of poor people,” Mr. Chouinard, 83, said in an exclusive interview with the New York Times. “We are going to give away the maximum amount of money to people who are actively working on saving this planet.”PS this isn't a sponsored post!
