Another friend has left us

The August 14 another serious incident occurred on our mountains: Carlo Ravetti e Luca Savoia They rushed on Lyskamm East, at the end of the climb to the saddle ridge, with fatal results for both.

Carlo Ravetti, Former chief of neurology at the hospital San Giovanni Bosco in Turin, had joined the Club in 4000 2011 having to his credit all 4000 of the Alps. It was a clever and cautious climber, interpreter of a classic mountaineering that led him sometimes to walk streets Remember, as well shines through its report on the climb to Parrot for the Way of the Italian 21 last July and interventions of opinions and debates on Forum. But the mountain is indifferent to the value of the people who love him.

Above all, Charles was a friend to rely on, as can testify everyone who got to know him and to make up with him, like skiing in the mountains.

His wife Laura and his sons, we can only express our personal condolences and the condolences of the entire Club 4000.
