Soul Mountain: A Change of Scenery

Soul Mountain is a project that combines two seemingly unrelated disciplines – music and climbing. This is not the case for Jordi Mestre, who has long recognized a significant link between the two and has used it to create his most personal work.

In this third installment of Soul Mountain, Jordi takes on another beast, 3000 meters above sea level. This time, it’s Besiberri Nord in Catalonia, Spain.

Instead of playing his electric guitar on this conquest, Jordi took the D’Angelico Tammany acoustic guitar in his trusty MONO Vertigo Acoustic Guitar Case.

Here are some breathtaking photos of Jordi and team on Besiberri Nord:

Along with this ascent, the Soul Mountain project also partnered up with Fanatic Guitars to raise funds through a guitar giveaway for the Kilian Jornet Foundation — an organization that works on several projects dedicated to studying, preserving and raising awareness about the threats to our mountain environments.

With the guitar giveaway, Soul Mountain successful raised €1,650 for the World Glacier Monitoring Service that observes one of the most visible impacts of climate change: glacier recession, with the goal of developing preservation projects for the earth’s glacial masses.

We are constantly inspired by Jordi and the importance of the Soul Mountain project and hope that this series continues to shed light on what is happening to our planet and how we can all do our part in preserving its beauty.
