Yesterday was the press conference Txikon Alex and Carlos Suarez in the Hotel Carlton in Bilbao. The hall was crowded, and the cause deserved it. Alex and his new partner Txikon Carlos Suarez presented their next expedition to Gasherbrum Iwinter .

Alex and Carlos Suarez Txikon depart this Thursday the 12 January to the Karakorum, on a direct flight from Barcelona to Islamabad. There it will meet the team, composed of  Gerfried Göschl (Austria, 1972), Darek Zaluski (Poland), Cedrik Hahl (Switzerland), Nissan Hussein(Pakistan). A group of climbers luxury in winter try to reach the summit of Gasherbrum I, opening a new route.

Yesterday we talked about their plans in this expedition, besides being a mountainous challenge, you can supplement it with some other base jumping . As we mentioned in previous articles, Alex, for some months has been performing parachute jumps from a plane in Empuriabrava. Carlos is now a specialist in the field. If time and location permits, does not rule out some “fly” through the area.

Here are some pictures from the press conference. Prior to departure, send you more info.

We are already counting down!
