Mihnea Prundeanu. Alpinist. Geographer. Mountain Guide.

I love the mountains and the sports. I also love to travel, to discover the beauty of nature, to meet new people and learn about different cultures. My semi-nomadic lifestyle revolves around my family and my two passions: alpinism and geography, that have blended so well together. I believe that authentic alpinism means exploration, discovery of new ways of getting to the top, minimalist, fast and clean ascents and these are the values I try to reflect in my personal projects.

My passion for the mountains started when I was a child when I would often make small excursions around the city or go camping with the scouts. Since then I visited or guided expeditions in the Himalayas, Cordillera Blanca and other remote areas. When I am not involved in personal projects I enjoy sharing my passion for the mountains with those wishing to discover it. To get in touch, you can write at mihnea@mihneaprundeanu.com.

Eugster Direct. Aiguille du Midi

Despre acest traseu auzim mai rar, nu are foarte mult renume si pare sa fie deseori uitat printre multe alte trasee vecine care parcurg spectaculosul versant nordic al lui Aiguille du Midi.

A steep challenge. Ski Barbey Couloir

[RO/EN] Anul acesta am petrecut mai mult timp pe schiuri decat o fac de obicei. Recunosc, nu este pasiunea mea numarul 1 si in ultimii ani am cam neglijat-o asa ca sezonul acesta de iarna m-am hotarat sa-i acord mai multa atentie si exercitiu.

Mary Poppins | Mont Blanc Massif

Mary Poppins - North face of Aiguille du Midi (Col du Plan) - 700 m, TD+, 5 Beeing back in Chamonix after a short climb of Mont Blanc with my girlfriend, I was waiting for good weather and suitable conditions for some rock routes. But this summer season was quite unusual with strong winds up on the mountains, cold temperatures and fresh snow on the faces. Cosmin Andron and Cristina Pogacean had climbed a few days earlier the Frendo Spur in serious winter conditions and other climbers were saying there was good ice on the north face of Grand Jorasse. Having [...]

Chamonix & Mont Blanc

Anul acesta am terminat sezonul de iarna intr-un mod deosebit, prin locuri care deja imi sunt foarte dragi, acolo unde zapezile se mentin pentru tot timpul anului, unde frumosul te invaluie oriunde esti si unde oamenii, in marea lor majoritate, traiesc pentru ceea ce le ofera cel de deasupra lor: Muntele. Mont Blanc. Suntem la poalele muntelui pentru prima data la sfarsit de martie. Chamonix, capitala alpinismului nu este la fel de incarcat de flori precum vara si parca sunt mai putin turisti. Atmosfera este, insa, foarte placuta si linistitoare. In aparenta, pe versantii vaii Chamonix nu pare sa fie [...]
