Pere Renom

“We have given you, O Adam, no visage proper to yourself, nor endowment properly your own, in order that whatever place, whatever form, whatever gifts you may, with premeditation, select, these same you may have and possess through your own judgement and decision […] We have made you a creature neither of heaven nor of earth, neither mortal nor immortal as the free and proud shaper of your own being, fashion yourself in the form you may prefer.”

Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

Talk: Toubkal, ascension to the highest peak of Atlas

published on 8.03.2012

The Toubkal with its 4,167 meters is the highest peak of Atlas. Pere Renom rose to the top together with Jordi Renom and Marc Durà on December 30, 2011 and recounted the experience in the Hiking Centre Badalona. In the talk he explained the technical and logistical aspects of the ascension, such as the approach, the path, the planning stages, weather conditions or the material used. But he also included some observations on the landscape of the Atlas, the ethnography and culture of Berber, and a description of the city of Marrakech, where the expedition ended.
