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: "Les Horizons lointains" a selection of the best climbing stories from Chris Bonington which won the second prize of the International mountain books festival of Passy in 2011; " Les montagnes de l'Antartique" (The mountains of Antartica) from Damien Gildea; "Le bruit de la chute" (The Sound of Gravity) from Joe Simpson; "Voler l'Everest" (Maurice Wilson, a Yorkshireman on Everest) from Ruth Hanson, some of the revenue of which will be donated to Doug Scott's Community Action Nepal; "L'ombre et la lumière" (Learning to Breathe) from Andy Cave which won the Grand prize of the International mountain books festival of Passy in 2013; "Whymper photographe" (Whymper' Scrambles with a camera') from Peter Berg of the AC; 'Everest 1953' from Mick Conefrey. My latest just published are "Le Choix du vide" (High Infatuation) from Steph Davis and "Les Mystères de l'Everest" the French version of Michael Ward magnificent book on Everest "Everest a thousand years of exploration" for which I found a Scottish publisher (Hayloft publishing) for the English version just published in December 2013. In 2014 'Freedom Climbers' from Bernadette McDonald won the Grand prize of the Festival of Passy,and I have more to come.
