So let me just take you on a tour round the words to do with 'alpinizm'. There are a few ways you can refer to 'alpinizm':
The word for 'raki' is

Here, I have to pay tribute to the the team of Polish mountaineers who died in the winter expedition to Broad Peak in the Himalayas... The team conquered the 8,047 meter peak on March 5 2013 but two of them, i.e. Maciej Berbeka and Tomasz Kowalski went missing on their way down. Although I am not a person who is in any special way keen on mountaineering, I have to say, I am in awe of all mountaineers who demonstrate such courage and determination to achieve the goals of their truly genuine passion.
