Mountains.

It is said that people from Bilbao are born wherever they want. I chose Valladolid. There mountains are flat and not higher than a good old birch tree. Alex Txikon couldn’t follow my steps and decided to go for more steper ways on the walls of the Basque Country mountains. He managed a few years ago to be the first, together with another couple of extraordinary men, reaching the summit of the Nanga Parbat (8126m) in winter. Right now is trying to do the same on the K2, the last one of the 14 peaks over 8000. He is not alone. And unfortunatelly these last weeks has been proved that nobody is alone in the mountains. Two climbers were trying to climb the Nanga Parbat by a very complicated and dangerous route. Communication with them stopped more than 10 days ago and hope has already been beaten by realism. Nevertheless Alex didn’t wait a second in order to give a try to find them. These pictures are my humble tribute to these men and specially to all women.
