Valais : Isabel’s interview

Isabel, given your alpine experience, did you have any “fears” about the second stage of The Mountain Academy 2 ?

For this stage, I didn’t feel very comfortable with my low specific endurance training. I thought that maybe I wouldn’t be able to follow the rhythm of the group…

And finally?

In the beginning of the week I felt that a lot, but by the end of the week I felt more trained!

Can you tell us 1 or 2 things you have learnt this week?

I learnt how to rescue someone from a crevasse and how to make a solid “abalakov.”

What would be your “+” and your “-” of this week?

+ : to lead on a high mountain ridge for the first time and in doing so overcoming something I previously thought impossible!

– : still some lack of communication due to language; we should talk more common English instead of French only.

What is your favourite MHW / BD / Aku product ?

The Hunker down jacket!

If this week would be a colour, it would be …?

Red, because everybody was wearing red clothes; and white for the snow and glaciers.

… and if it would be a flavour?

Soup and cheese.

What are your plans once you get back home?

Maybe start a new job at the university in Madrid, or maybe go back to Argentina.
