JAVI

I'm originally from Spain but am currently based in Cape Town, and besides being a Principal IT Engineer in the World’s largest software maker, I’m a passionate climber always looking for new challenges and to give the best out of me on all diverse adventure sports. For the last 20 years I’ve been pushing hard at work to overcome my limits by working towards clear targets with passion and determination. For the last 10 years I’ve been doing the same on my free time outside work, enjoying various forms of climbing (sport, trad, alpine and heavy expeditions) all around the world, riding motorbikes on and off road, exploring the Arabian deserts and African landscapes in my jeep, and paragliding in the most beautiful skies. But my biggest addiction is high altitude mountaineering, and my real passion is taking part in long expeditions to the most challenging places on Earth. My motivation? 'Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire…'
