NIVES MEROI AND ROMANO BENET'S NIGHT

NIVES MEROI - ROMANO BENET presented by JUANJO SAN SEBASTIÁN

Saturday December 14 – 19:30 Sala BBK

Their first expedition to an eight-thousander happened 25 years ago, and they finished conquering them all in 2017. During all these years, they were forced to stop at some point, which proves the great human value of this roped team. Back in 2009, the couple was climbing Kanchenjunga, when Romano started feeling unwell. Nives was competing against Edurne Pasaban and Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner in order to become the first woman to climb all 14 eight-thousanders. However, Nives decided she would pause their high-mountain challenge until her husband felt better. After two bone marrow transplants, Romano was fully recovered and back in the Himalayas. Together, as always, they summited the ‘Crown of Himalaya’ in 2017, as they got to the top of Annapurna.
