As many of you will know, Basques are known for their mountaineering exploits, a topic we have posed on several times in the past. The Basque Mountaineering Federation was founded in Elgeta, Gipuzkoa, on May 18, 1924 to serve as a source of information, organization, and support for the numerous hiking clubs scattered across the Basque Country. Today it is an umbrella organization that, as well as mountaineering and hiking, incorporates a diverse range of disciplines including caving, competition climbing, Nordic walking, and canyoning.
