Ortler, and more

Ortler, and more

To be honest, few months ago I didn’t think this would have happened. When the corona crisis began, and Europe closed its internal and external borders, I thought my alpine plans for the summer were no more.

Relive ‘Cima Marmotta’

However, I decided to keep training, once again following a plan from Uphill Athlete, for two reasons: the first, training is never wasted time. If nothing happened, I still would have added to my training bank hours upon hours of aerobic training. The second reason to keep training was that, if at some point in the summer I got green light for my alpine trip with NKBV, I would have had no time to start training, so I had to be in good shape already.

Relive ‘Zufallspitze’

And finally in mid June, one month before the trip, we got green light. And after the trip, here I am sharing some videos I made with Relive, highlighting the three main summits of the trip: Cima Marmotta, Zufallspitze, and the Ortler.
