We left Cham under the rain, but as soon as we got to Italy the sun was shining.
The next day we were on the Gran Paradiso summit (4061m), happy to be there, dealing with a bit of wind, cold fingers and nose. I was blown away by the view on the Mont Blanc, like I never saw it before.
This was the first step of a few months project to climb the 4000m peaks of the alps and get to see new places of an amazing and huge terrain.
I’m stoked and grateful to start this long journey together with Colin Haley. Apart from the fact he is such an impressive Alpinist, Colin is an amazing human and a very fun guy to share long days in the mountains with. Plus, he’s always keen on breaking trails ;)
We are on hold now due to the weather but this is ok. There is no record to beat, no firsts to do, no time pressure. “Only” 82 beautiful mountains to climb, together with precious friends and in good style.
It’s on, and I’m stoked for what is coming next!
