Aesthetic Survival by Aurora Realini & Sam Le Roy [TECHUNTER asks]
In August 2022, we found ourselves in Chamonix. At this time of the year, Chamonix turns into a Coachella for trail running - athletes from all over the world gather at the foot of Mont Blanc to run one of the ultra distances on the slopes of the Alps.

Luck struck again for us: our friends Aurora Realini and Sam Le Roy were passing by this magical place on their way to complete 20 summits for the Aesthetic Survival book. Aesthetic Survival is an exploratory guide to the culture of bivouacs. A dissection of architecture, geography, and topography for 20 different bivouacs across the Alps, all gathered in one 224-page guidebook.

We had just a few minutes with the power duo, but we managed to have an insightful conversation, that we also recorded for your enjoyment.
Make sure to follow both of these amazing individuals and get yourself a copy of their book available soon in bookshops and stores around the globe.
