Another "fine collection"!

The 2012 looks like a good year to end the "collection" of 4000. The ambitious goal was reached last August 28 from our partner Floriano Martinaglia, With the beautiful traverse of the Grandes Jorasses. But our Floriano is not confined to the "collection" of 4000: among his climbs are among others the classic trio of the Eiger North, Walker and Matterhorn.

Congratulations, Floriano, and wishes to continue with the mountaineering activities with climbs of great satisfaction,

Our partner Franz Rota Nodari, Well known by those who follow our website for the numerous trips of relationships that you can find in our Forum, All accompanied by great pictures (which, among other things, have always contributed to the beauty of our calendar), he has informed us that it has completed the collection of "4000" the 20 last August with the triptych Pointe Médiane - Pointe Carmen - L 'Isolée (see report in our Forum).

Add that Franz has completed the collection mainly 10 years, it appears to be the youngest Italian partner to have it completed and the first of the Bergamo Section of the CAI, which is one of the most represented within the Club (including subsections) 16 members.

Congratulations again and always look forward to new relationships and great pictures, perhaps on other lesser known climbing routes of 4000.
