JERZY KUKUCZKA: SHISHA PANGMA '87
2nd of December to 15th
Club Deportivo Bilbao. Alameda de Recalde, 28 9:00-22:00
The great Polish alpinist Jerzy Kukuczka completed in eight years the challenge of climbing all 14 eight-thousanders, the ‘Crown of the Himalaya.’ He got to the end of the list in 1987, as he reached the summit of Shisha Pangma with Artur Hajzer. And he did it as he knew best: opening a new route through the west ridge in alpine style. The pictures from that expedition are the focus of this exhibition.
