Rosa Fernández, mountaineer and fighter

For being the day of Asturias, today is a holiday here but I will not talk about the events that have been taking place since the weekend in the beautiful fishing village of Cudillero. Instead, I will do it from a woman who discovered that she loved the mountain and her passion has led her to crown several of the highest peaks on the planet. Outside of this world of beauty that is not without risk, he has also had to fight against breast cancer and as a sign of recognition of its value, yesterday he received the Silver Medal of the Principality of Asturias.

Although in his words, mountaineering is still a world of men, physically stronger, women beat them in resistance. Within the minority club of Spanish mountaineers, also highlights the Basque Edurne Pasaban (candidate for the "Prince of Asturias" Sports Award) that left yesterday in the direction of Tibet with the TVE program team "On the edge of the impossible." There he will try to crown the Shisha Pangma (8,027 meters), the penultimate 'ochomil' that remains to tread to become the first woman in history to climb las fourteen highest tops on the planet.

With enthusiasm and respect, but not fear, faces Rosa Fernández every new adventure. He has suffered from small accidents and freezes abroad to, most seriously, a Snow avalanche in an Asturian peak, but a week after it returned to the mountain.

Although, due to the consequences of the treatment of his illness, he noticed extreme temperatures a lot and had to postpone an expedition to Nepal in April, for this September he wants to cycle the Atlas Mountains, and next spring climb two eightyears still to be decided

Almost nothing!
