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.

I knew that somewhere North, behind the high ridges of Dolomiti di Brenta lies even a greater paradise of rock walls and towers. The subconscious mind of  a climber had already started [...]

Arco, un labirint de calcar

A treia destinatie a circuitului nostru de escalada a fost orășelul italian de la poalele Dolomitilor: Arco. Arco este una dintre cele mai mari si cunoscute zone de escalada din Europa datorita sutelor de pereti de calcar de pe valea Sarca si imprejurimi. Acest lucru se datoreaza nu numai infrastructurii de esclada cu mii de trasee dar si laturii turistice ale acestei ramuri sportive. Un pic coplesiti de sumedenia de pereti din jur, primul lucru pe care l-am facut a fost sa „cotrobaim” pe ingustele stradute ale oraselului si sa ne cumparam un topo cu traseele din zona. Cei care [...]
