Festival of alpinism, Smichov, Prague

Kurt Albert etc...

smThe inventor of "red point" climbing style Kurt Albert (from the Frankenjura, DE) was probably the biggest attraction for rock climbers at the Festival of Alpinism in Smichov Prague, Czech Republic this weekend.

From the mountaineers there were Hans Kammerlander, Peter Habeler and Kurt Diemberger.

Kurt Albert (53 years old), who in the 70´s began to mark clean climbed routes by with a red point, which later developed the sport climbing style of red point (RP), talked this weekend about the expedition to Venezuela. Almost a year ago his expedition climbed one of the table mountains called tepui (Acopan Tepui) via a new 600 m long route, that they named El Purgatorio, 7c (Purgatory in Spanish). As he explained to me, the route is adequately equipped by bolts  at least on belaying positions) and the rest secured by gear and suitable for further repetition.

Behind the scenes of the Festival: Kurt Albert lends his personal experience to members of a Czech expedition which plans to climb in Canada according to an article by Kurt Albert published in 90´s in the Czech climbing magazine Montana.

Another foreign guest, Carlos Suarez from Madrid, after his presentation about climbing and base jumping. Btw. Carlos is Kurt´s adviser for his journeys across Latin America, who helped him e.g with the study of Spanish. Latin America will probably be Kurt´s aim again. He told me he would like to visit  Venezuela again and may be Mexico for his next climbing trip.
