Title: Exclusive interview: Jaime Vinals, 7summiteer & survivor of one night at 8725m
Post by: 7summits on Jun 3 2003, 14:37
Jaime Vinals from Guatemala is the first Central american to climb the 7summits. He is now almost finished with climbing the '7islands as well.
Jaime visited us spring 2003; besides some sightseeing (including 'climbing' the highest point in the Netherlands ;)) he also told me about what really happened on Everest 2001, when he had to spend a night above the 2nd step.
The interview and information about how to book Jaime as a motivational speaker can be found on his detail page in the statistics section (http://7summits.com/info/stats2/index2.php?_=d&familyname=Viņals) (every summiteer that send us information gets a detail page.)
