En plein by Daniela Formica!

With the rise to Lauteraarhorn today, Daniela Formica, current President of the Club 4000, 82 4000 has climbed all of the Alps. To our knowledge, Daniela is the first Italian woman to have achieved this enviable record. Before her only two other women were successful in the enterprise, Jocelyne Gay and Margareth Voide Bumann, both Swiss.
The climb, carried out with Massimo Giuliberti, was made in five hours from the bivouac, with perfect conditions and mild weather, in total solitude.

Congratulations to Massimo and Daniela, who in addition to 4000 has made in the past season also other important climbs, already reported on Forum.
