Vertical Arena Sexten
Expert forum on the subject of mountaineering and climbing
Gabriel Tschurtschenthaler, Vittorio Messini & Matthias Wurzer
In December 2021, Gabriel Tschurtschenthaler and the Austrian mountain guides Vittorio Messini and Matthias Wurzer achieved something extraordinary: the ascent of the Cerro Torre (3,128m) in the Patagonian Andes. A mountain that, due to the adverse weather conditions and technical difficulties, can be climbed by only a few mountaineers. And there is a peculiarity that makes this success unique: Gabriel is 90% blind.
On Friday, 15.07.2022 at 20.30 Vittorio and Gabriel will tell about their adventure for the first time in front of an audience at the Vertical Arena Sexten. We can expect an exciting evening with great pictures from Christian “Kruscht” Riepler (Berg im Bild) – another mountain guide who documented the ascent with his high-resolution film and photo camera. Afterwards, as always at Vertical Arena, there will be a panel discussion with audience participation. The speakers will alternate between German and Italian. The event will again be moderated by Lisi Steurer, alpinist and mountain guide.
