It is incredible that last year I bought this beatiful book from the dear Colin Monteath in New Zealand.The book did a long trip (2 months and a half!) to Italy, as we are in antipodes of Kiwi Land.And now, one year later, I'm writing about the New Zealand Alpine Team 2nd ascent, after being in contact with Daniel Joll, the New Zealand climber in team with two Aussie 😊 #montagnamagicaweb #alpinestyle #alpinismo #alpinism #Himalaya #climbing #changabang ...

On this day, in 1982, great mountaineer, climber, explorer, photographer Carlo Mauri died on his Lecco mountains suffering a stroke while climbing .Carlo Mauri, a "Ragni di Lecco" member, climbed Gasherbrum IV in 1958 with his partner Walter Bonatti, led by Riccardo Cassin.He climbed with Walter in Patagonia. After a serious leg accident, Carlo was forced to leave serious climbing but soon he became a great explorer and photographer. He traversed Atlantic Ocean on "Ra", a boat made by papyrus like Egyptians built at their time.He made Antarctica explorations and many other expeditions.True explorer, photographer and strong climber. He was a very good friend of my grandad and my personal hero during my youth.A gentle, well bearded and funny man.I miss him a lot, like I've lost a uncle and a model of life.(ph archives Alfonso Bernardi, Mauri's book, his pics) #carlomauri#ragnidilecco#karakorum#patagonia #antarctica #exploration#alpinism#climbing#montagnamagicaweb ...

Alessandro Filippini, veteran mountaineering journalist, posted today:"A large number of 8000ers peaks climbed in all the possible means in a single photo- without o2 cylinders, alone, on new route, in first winter ascents, the record for the shortest time to collect them all - Here is captain Simone Moro on his helicopter with Reinhold Messner and Norwegian Kristin Harila.

Almo Giambisi,born in 1938, one of the giant Italian climbers, alpine guide, a humble man with an incredible stamina and fitness - with more than 1000 ascents in the Alps and Dolomites, expeditions in Africa, Patagonia, alpine style climbs without oxygen on Makalu 1985, Annapurna 1986 (first Italian) , Shisha Pangma, is very active on Facebook and today posted this stunning memory of a masterpiece attempt, an epic journey without summit but full of glory:"We are in season where people climb the 8000ers, very popular in these times. On K2 north ridge route I had to give up the summit after a bivouac at 8250 meters without a sleeping bag and without a tent, my partner Gigio Visentin had severe frostbite on his feet and I had to go down , a great experience that lasted four and a half months and there were no mobile phones in 1983."(ph Almo Giambisi, K2/ Facebook profile)#montagnamagicaweb #alpinestyle #alpinismo #alpinism #winterclimbing #climbing #karakorum #k2 #almogiambisi ...
