El Himalaya es un cruce de caminos para los monta√Īeros. Es normal que todo el mundo intentara ayudar a su amigo I√Īaki s√≥lo que, en este caso, los amigos √©ramos de diferentes pa√≠ses.
Entre nosotros nos conocemos desde hace tiempo y nos hemos convertido en un equipo. Es una relaci√≥n dif√≠cil de explicar. Cuando sigues un sue√Īo con otra persona y atraves√°is dificultades hasta conseguirlo, os convert√≠s en grandes amigos. La monta√Īa une. A veces es un sentimiento m√°s fuerte que el amor hacia una mujer.
As√≠ que los que nos encontramos en la monta√Īa, no podr√≠amos decir que somos de diferentes pa√≠ses porque en realidad somos del mismo pa√≠s. De la monta√Īa.
El alpinismo es una parte importante de mi vida que desarrolla el instinto m√°s humano. Me despierta esa curiosidad por querer saber qu√© habr√° detr√°s de esa piedra, qu√© encontrar√© al otro lado de la ladera, qu√© gente conocer√©… Me obliga a pensar constantemente en c√≥mo voy a resolver los problemas que se me planteen, c√≥mo conservar las amistades en las situaciones l√≠mite. Poder superar esas pruebas me hace ver que soy un hombre de verdad, no s√≥lo una m√°scara en un cuerpo vac√≠o.
Este sentimiento es algo que no puedes comprar en ninguna tienda de la ciudad; sólo lo consigues luchando.

Himalaya is a crossroads for mountaineers. Everyone wanted to help his friend I√Īaki, which was normal. It’s just that in this case, all friends were from different countries.
We have known each other for a long time and have become a team. I can’t really explain how does this relationship feel. It happens when you follow a dream with someone, and you get through a lot of trouble to get there. When you both reach that dream, you become really good friends. Mountain joins people together. Sometimes this feeling is even stronger than the love for a woman.
So, for those who meet on the mountains, we can’t say we are from different countries, because we actually are from the same country. From mountains.
Alpinism is an important part of my life because it maximizes the human instinct. It wakes me up the natural curiosity of wanting to know what’s behind that stone, what will I find on the other side of the hill, who will I meet… It makes me keep alert. Thinking constantly on how am I going to get through the difficulties or how to keep friendship in extreme situations. Being able to overcome those circumstances makes me realize I’m a real man. Not only a mask in an empty body.
This is a feeling that can’t be bought in any city mall store. You only get it by struggling.
