MOUNTAINEERING: A SPORT THAT REQUIRES TRAINING
Saturday 8– 11:30 Sala BBK
The Basque alpinist Alberto Iñurrategi shares, while conversing with the audience, examples of his preparation and training sessions throughout the last few years under the watchful eyes of his fellow members of the Basque Team Foundation: Aitor Alberdi, his sports and technical director, and Xabier Leibar, his medical consultant. All sporting disciplines have attained standards of professionalization in all aspects. Adopting this tendency in mountaineering would be of maximum interest. As when it comes down to it, mountaineering is something more than a leisure activity, it’s a sport.
