First Swedish partner: Peter Sandahl

In mid-August our Club accepted with pleasure and honor the application for membership of Swedish Peter Sandahl. The new partner, accompanied by Danny Uhlmann, an American guide residing in Chamonix, is the architect of the "Climb for Climate" project. The project consisted of the concatenation of 82 Quattromila in 100 days. The aim was to raise public awareness of the impact of climate change in the Alps, thus inducing people to behave more environmentally friendly. The initiative, of which you can find out the details on the dedicated website (https://www.climbforclimate.com /), has enjoyed the support of important sponsors. The great crossing, begun on May 5, ended after three months with the achievement of 72 peaks. There were ten missing at the end, but the two climbers had to stop because of not very good weather conditions but, above all, prohibitive conditions of the remaining climbing routes, due to the excessive warming of the last weeks. An attitude of responsibility that, in the spirit of the project, does not mean a defeat, but an acceptance of the state of affairs.
A special welcome to the new member Peter Sandahl!
