The French broth

/ Mountain News

After two months on the jury of the Golden ice Axe I decided to refuse. This realization came just before trips to the main ceremony. Not attracted to France, was not interesting Chamonix, did not catch the party with the brightest representatives of the modern alpinism..

Because there was a sense of helplessness. Like I was boiled into a large pot, where boiled broth... a lot of things have been added. Was possible to see nothing beyond the nose, reigns closeness with intrigues.

Because there was a sense of helplessness. Like I was boiled into a large pot, where boiled broth... a lot of things have been added. Was possible to see nothing beyond the nose, reigns closeness with intrigues. - In the mountains, everything is simple and clear - shared at once in training with the poles. Two guys agreed to take the company on the rocks Finale Ligure. - A hook here, hook there. A turn of the body... Everything under control, everything depends on you! - What about fortune?! - stew Marek and Wojtek. - Your hands became tired soon, and nothing would come out. Or stone fall to the head. - So, poorly trained, - I repeated stubbornly. – Or thought wrong. - Now Barbara, our friend, has to arrive, - they smiled. - And you will forget any sportive thoughts. Or may to become ill after yesterday's workout in the rain. - A person can do everything in case of ability. In sports, everything is simple! Did you reach the summit - it means you are winner. Not climbed the mountain means that you are loser. Meant, of course, something little bit different. Mountaineering is the complex and the distance does not finish by the conquest of the peak. Is important to go down. Preserving health and the desire to live. The risk that largely determines the course gives backpackings philosophy. This is not a bouldering – one, two, grip under the left, to count the dynamics of jerk... the game by the rules... foot on the panel, and – top! Or fall on the mattress, with a wild desire to complete the rush. Is a lot of attempts.

To go to Chamonix wanted, when I realized what was expected from me. No! Not organizers, not buddy Christian Trommsdorff. But something important for the youth. For the guys who «trampled» routes in Finale Ligure with a dream about South-West face of Makalu. Looking at carving on a snowboard son Stepan, I decided that the most important thing is to help him to learn. Not only courage to drive on highways... but also to achieve the goals. Once again came the realization that life is a chance for action, which should be used. From a bottle of wine to women's knees. And what else is important?! By military practicality I replaced the political games finally. And came to France.

Stepan famously jumped chair lifts, torn down on the Board, presented by magician Franco Acerbis. I could barely fallow my son, trying to keep knees because had expedition soon! After a few days my rails... sorry! the plane was heading to the Nepal. And in Chamonix was possible to burn days under the mountain sun, the good weather improved on jealousy. Full of optimism, I even remembered how to do a circles snowboarding on the slopes. However, the young Stepan turned it instantly and relaxed.

- - Daddy, what did you told me how hard it is?! - he wondered. – To scare wanted? Actually, this is easy. The main thing is not to fear. And to do things once, without unnecessary bulky attempts. Thank You, Stepa! On the discussion of the nominees I squinted my eyes on the beautiful Catherine Destivelle. She could understand the difference between on-site and "pump". And then shook hands with Erri De Luca met ultimate decision in his eyes. Gave the Korean Lim Sung Muk usual gift, several bars of chocolate. - And you, Mr. George Lowe - acute and boldly, as befits a young ensign, I gave to his eyes, - I need to tell you, that is not the right decision to do kindergarten from climbing! Remember yourself on the North face of Free Korea peak in Kyrgyzstan! - M-m-m, - he blinked for a moment from the pleasant memories. But! shaking his white head, wise fell out of a trance. As if to say "Oh! who's there?!" And continued with the views of the chief judge to read notation for all other jury members. And I sat and thought that would never have dared to climb solo by Lowe’s couloir. Strrrange! Or dare?! Because the solo-line at the peak Ordjonikidze was frightened. As I had to say in Seoul. In the past worlds... many years ago: - Once I was the only athlete, and lived only by one rule - no rules! But more difficult now. Should be able to navigate. - And now the choice of the jury this year was the most faithful, - smiled thinly Anna Piunova. We came out of the present-hall, and gradually moved all in the direction of the bus. To the night. - In recent years it was like the most positive choice. - Do you think, why!? - I clicked on her brain. - What is a difference! Me and Babanov after the disappointments of the last year already in the front row with the Apple cores and rotten eggs was sitting, - she winked to walking near Valera. - To throw and hiss. Thank God, everything realised well! - Do you think, why?! - I again became tense. - Went hint: into the jury two women were.

Yeah! Broth got rich. I felt uncomfortable. Up to the end. However, when fate has thrown out on the surface, it appeared that in this soup is cooked me not so bad. Adding my aromas to the final dish. In General, as said by George Lowe – full of Democracy and Compromise! In case of cooking by the such "hard-nosed" climbers as the Lowe, Trommsdorff, De Luca, your obedient servant, irreconcilable journalists... the broth again would be excessively spicy salt or face fresh. However... the lady's hands were this time more wisely with the full understanding of the situation. And the soup became delicious. And let the spring give to all girls of our mountaineering planet real female happiness. We, men can attempt to implement them.
