Chapeau, Dominique, and welcome!

We welcome a new member who is from Belgium, a country whose highest peak reaches the 700 m. Yet our new affiliate, Dominique De Staercke He did not let a modest curriculum: it has to his credit all 82 4000 of the Alps! we can only congratulate him, and go to know him better through its website www.4000desalpes.eu.

Still "en plein"!

Apparently our member Alberto Cucatto He did not reach a new 4000 2009 from afar; and instead he went stealthily completing the collection, which has completed the 11 last August with the climb to the Aig. Blanche and the Grand Pilier d'Angle to the Peuterey ridge. We just have to write down your new "82 / 82" and congratulate Alberto for this beautiful climb, described in detail on "Gulliver", and for the ambitious goal achieved.

Welcome, Luigi, and congratulations!

We welcome Luigi Farnelli, Which enters the club having to his credit all the 82 4000! This fact, already quite unusual, it becomes particularly relevant because our new partner has just turned thirty, ripping Franz Rota Nodari the primacy (just conquered!) The youngest climber who has completed the "collection".

We make our congratulations to Luigi and expect to give us some more information on him and on his climbs.

It would not only broke loose the race for the record: we do not accept members under 6 years ....

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,

Bravissimo, Franz!

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.
