Mourning Club 4000

It is with great sadness that we give the announcement of the death of an associate, the Belgian Bart Naert. Bart, who had his four thousand 70 active, was missing for two days in Val Masino. Apparently he tried solo (as was his wont) the northern edge of Badile. The tragedy occurred on the descent via the Swiss side; although there are no witnesses to the incident, there are not many doubts that this was a purely accidental.

A souvenir photo of Bart Naert is available on Forum.
