Georges Livanos (The Greek): See above the site I created on the memory of my friend and Master es climbing Georges Livanos - Quotes from the "king" of the Calanques, Emperor of the Dolomites (500 1rst ascents) - Better one more peg than one man less... particularly if that man is me! - There are no "bad" rocks, but "bad" climbers! - Great darings make short carreers! - How could it be serious to take seriously such a non serious activity! - When I garantee a peg, one could attach an aircraft carrier to it!
A Few Words: Lac blanc Aiguilles Rouges Chamonix - Photo taken by my friend Afa (Jean Afanassieff) I don't remember when, but showing a technique used to train for winter ascents.
These days, my favourite is sauna and translating climbing books of English speaking friends such as:
a selection of the best climbing stories from Chris Bonington;
'The mountains of Antartica' from Damien Gildea;
The Sound of Gravity' from Joe Simpson;
'Maurice Wilson, a Yorkshireman on Everest', some of the revenue of which will be donated to Doug Scott's Community Action Nepal;
'Learning to Breathe' from Andy Cave;
'Whymper' Scrambles with a camera' from Peter Berg of the AC;
'Everest 1953' from Mick Conefrey.
My latest to be published soon are 'High Infatuation' from Steph Davis', 'Freedom Climbers' from Bernadette McDonald and the French version of Michael Ward magnificent book on Everest for which I found a scottish publisher for the English version to be published around June/July 2013.
