Last 4000 for Nicola Beltraminelli

It lacked only the Matterhorn in Nicola Beltraminelli to reach the finish of 82 "4000". This 'lack' has been filled him last August 3 with the ascent to the "Grand Becca" for the Hörnli ridge, well-documented photographically on Picasa.

Congratulations to Nicola for the achievement and best wishes for many more beautiful ascents!

Even a death in our Club

Manuela Motta. The news came like a bolt from the blue, prompting disbelief of those who knew her well. 2 Last August, during the descent from Zinalrothorn, his 46esimo 4000, during a double rope maneuver, for a number of fatalities Manuela was precipitated losing their lives. Although he joined the club only 4000 2014, Manuela was immediately inserted in the environment of the high mountain enthusiasts, who appreciate the sporting and human qualities.

I have many friends who shared his passion and all members of the Club 4000 shake to family members, sharing their grief for this great loss.
