<font color=blue>misfortunes in the mountains</font>?

these two Nobel Prizes for: "Foxiness and equipment in the mountains", they are walking with gym shoes on a snowfield long more than two hundred meters (Just a breath of wind to make them slip away).

Sometimes a ranger ready to give a nice pecuniary sanction...can save many lives.
(starting from the shoes)

Mount Chaberton (side North).

questo caso qui da noi si usa far pagare l'intera operazione di soccorso (elicottero compreso).

E fate bene!

io aggiungerei un 100% di multa in più per un fondo pro soccorritori alpini vittime delle...."vittime" di montagna.
C'è gente (ogni anno) che riesce a cacciarsi nei guai andando semplicemente in fuoripista con gli sci.
Ciao Antonio.

Re: Bad practice...

Two mad, Father & son.
and they have even looked at me with arrogance, when I stopped to put on crampons.
I'm glad not to have seen them fall.
They have done all the way down on their presumptuous C..O
Quanti purtoppo, se ne vedono in giro così, e Silvia?

This reminds me of...

some of the bad judgements I have seen people make in the mountains. Unfortunately, some of them didn't live long enough to learn from their mistakes.

Re: This reminds me of...

Unfortunately Marc.
In the mountains a lapse in concentration mean make us very bad, even when the equipment is perfect.
It is like a diving, body and mind right!
Ciao Marc and have a really nice day.
Ps. Next Sunday I went to interview the son of the manager of the shelter, the article is almost ready (O:

Underestimate the mountains are fatal. A simple slip and a man can fall thousand feet or more to their injury of death.

Re: Underestimated

I totally agree with you dear Afzal.
These two were lucky, but I'd rather not trust my life to luck. If I do not feel prepared or suitable for a climb, would rather give up.
I have only one life and there are too many beautiful things to see to risk...ruining everything. Not to mention all those who love you and are waiting for you at home.
Ciao and thank you for the visit.

Hi (salam)

Is that house for mountaineers?

With a small mistake that person can fall and always we face to danger in the mountains.But your pic has beauty and danger.

Ciao (salam)

Cheers Samira.
is the old guardhouse (built in the late nineteenth century) of the fortress that is on the top of the mountain.
Unfortunately, after the Second World War, have been removed all the furniture (beds, shelves, stove) and frames (door, windows, size wind).
Otherwise, even today, would be a perfect retreat in case of bad weather.
All the best.
