Why Do you Climb?

Maison des artistes

Friday 17 June 2022 – 6pm

Literature & Mountaineering. Four mountaineers, climbers, but also authors (and editors) come together to answer the most basic question – Why do you climb? This round table is a continuation of the special session organised by the renowned media outlet, Libération, asking the same question to our guests and to a group of literary mountaineers.
