Blowing one’s own trumpet – Christophe Dumarest

Being modest and not taking ourselves too seriously is the key to a peaceful, no-nonsense life. So they say. Sometimes, however, we need to fulfil our sense of achievement and bring proof of what we do.

When I moved back to Italy four years ago, full of joy and excitement, I did not have a definite plan in mind, other than devoting all my energies to the mountains, cherishing their vital energy.

I have been fortunate enough to meet exceptional people and also first-rate mountaineers, climbers, adventurers.

One of them is Christophe Dumarest.

In addition to the already mentioned interview on the Italian review UP, I have also written about him for other magazines: Klettern (Germany) and Gory (Poland).
