THE DRAGONTAIL – a presentation by 4 climbers from Bulgaria

At the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016, four Bulgarian alpinists, Martin Marovski, Viktor Varoshkin, Grigor Vtev and Ruslan Vakrilov, spent two months in the Patagonian Andes, with aim to climb some of the most iconic summits in the world of technical alpinism. After a month of fighting with bad weather, during the last month of their expedition, they eventually made the first Bulgarian climb to the top of the Poincenot and also to the pearl of the Patagonian crown - the Cerro Torre.

Beside these 2 climbs, Martin Marovski and Viktor Varoshkin also made a first ascent through the vertical faces of the El Mocho needle - an ascent for which the received international recognition.

During our festival, Martin, Viktor, Grishita and Rus, with their photos, will make a presentation about what does it really mean to climb on the Patagonian summits, through a constant battle with the unstable weather and unpredictable winds.
