Avalanche ...

Recently, an earthquake's tremor in northern Italy triggered an avalanche that buried an entire hotel (hostel). Hopeful the 30 missing in this tragic catastrophe will be recovered swiftly, and the earthquake's will subside.

Re: Avalanche ...

Yeah I heared the tragic news... It is all over the news here in Europe. They rescued 10 people from the hotel today. Lets hope the remaining missing persons come out OK.

Hidden climbers

Beautiful photo! There are at least 7 climbers in the photo, 4 of them are not so obvious. There are 2 pairs of climbers on the ridge behind the 3 on the snowfield.

Re: Hidden climbers

Thanks & Sharp eye! You are exactly right. There are also 2 people right below us just outside of this photo and a group of 3 above us. I think that sums up all people climbing the route that day. For as far as I can recall, there were no other people in the hut the evening before the start of the climb.
