* It 's just a joke. The Club 4000 certainly not advocates "competition to see who makes more": it is true that mountaineering is a game, but it is a deadly serious game!

Tragic death of Arnaldo Caroni

20 last June, climbing to the Tower of Ovarda, was killed Arnaldo Caroni, our partner and good friend. Arnaldo, who had to his credit 54 and four others had gone up in the last season (he had promised me to let me have the new short list), was alone and it was probably the victim of a rockfall or landslide yield of snow from the hot springs.
Now his ashes rest in the cemetery in Courmayeur, in the shadow of Mont Blanc.

His wife and daughters condolences of the members of the Club 4000.
