The book describes Denis’ approach to alpinism, with special consideration given to his first important solo ascents in the territories of the old Soviet Union. Through the pages, the reader feels the soul of a young man fighting with financial difficulties in the harsh sphere of the Kazakh Army. The struggle, in the end though, was worth it. At the end of this challenging chapter in his personal history, Urubko today is a renowned alpinist who has climbed the highest mountains in the world in a style fellow alpinists endear.
Urubko has been in the spotlight in recent years for climbing routes on the fourteen 8,000 meter peaks without oxygen, and recently finished the first winter ascents on Makalu (8463 m) and Gasherbrum II (8035 m) together with Simone Moro.
Special thanks to publishing house "Priuli & Verlucca” who have translated the book into Italian. For Denis, this has been like seeing his opera now performed in its truest form.
"It's a great pride to see one of my books published in Italian language," Denis told us during his recent visit to our headquarters in Premana, “in Italy the alpine public follows me since many years, finally I can personally tell them my story".
CAMP is proud to measure up with the likes of Denis Urubko who has been a CAMP athlete now for many years. We send him our heartfelt congratulations on this literary award and we look forward to ever more stories as he continues to push the limits of alpinism in the future.
