2005 was a
year of lessons and achievements. The first because I couldn't reach the
summit of Dhaulagiri and I had to quit just 150 meters from the highest point

summit of Nanga Parbat, my eleventh eight-thousand.
is ready and I am very pleased to invite you to share those memories, feelings
and images with the audio-visual "HIMALAYA, HEADS OR TAILS", on March 16 and
17, 2006 at 19h30 in the Auditorium of Corporación Financiera Nacional.
audio-visual and pictorial display gathers the lessons of patience picked
during the long work of installing camps and the despair because of the bad
weather conditions on the mountain. The lessons of humbleness, because we had
to quit when we were so close to the summit. We were clear that it was more
important to be back to tell the tale. Then the Nanga Parbat lessons came,
with an insuperable human team, committed, with a lot of solidarity and very
strong for work. The price, an unforgettable day for the summit, and with it
under my feet I achieved one more step on my way to the FOURTEEN.
I hope to
share this story with you.
A big hug.
Ivan is one of the few climbers to summit
Everest from the North and South, both without oxygen. This quest for the 14
shall continue this Spring... Stay Tuned for more.
