IÑURRATEGI ANAIAK MENDIARI BIHOTZ EMANAK
RAMÓN OLASAGASTI - CÉSAR LLAGUNO - FELIPE H. NAVARRO
Saturday December 5 – 19:00 Euskalduna
This comic book essentially covers the careers of both Felix and Alberto Iñurrategi in the mountains, but not only that. The two brothers formed one of the most solid rope teams in the history of Basque mountaineering, and together they completed an exalted path, looking for new incentives in each of the mountains they faced: routes of commitment, light and fast style, aesthetic lines... But where and how to approach the route always prevailed over the summits. Felix died 20 years ago, on the descent of the Gasherbrum II, on his twelfth eight-thousander, after an unfortunate accident. His death shocked the entire Basque Country, which was dismayed by that tragic event. Alberto completed the fourteen eight-thousanders they had planned to climb by forming a rope team with other friends. And the Baltistan Fundazioa foundation, which was revitalised in memory of Felix, also continues to do a great deal of work in that mountain area. Precisely, the work of the foundation is another of the themes on which the comic is centred. In this way, the hearts of both, the mountain and the mountaineer, remain open, offering each other value and mutual support.
