Alberto Iñurrategi Iriarte (November 3, 1968) is a Spanish mountaineer born in Arechavaleta, Guipúzcoa, País Vasco (Spain), 3 November 1968. In the year 2002, he became the second Spaniard (after Juanito Oiarzabal) and 10th person to climb the 14 eight-thousanders.

He was 33 years old when he completed the eight-thousanders making him the youngest person to climb all 14. 12 of the peaks were climbed with his brother Felix who died on the descent of Gasherbrum II. Iñurrategi climbed the peaks in an Alpine style using few lines or sherpas and no bottled oxygen making him the fourth person to have climbed all 14 peaks without bottled oxygen. In collaboration with other climbers he has produced several climbing documentaries such as Annapurna: sueño y vacío, Gure Himalaya and Hire Himalaya.
