Really fascinating article. I've seen the picture of Russel in the sleeping bag, but I didn't know who he was. What a strange guy, but it's easy to feel kinship with him because he liked mountains so much. Thank you for writing it down!

Well done Visentin,
this is a fine article and a fitting tribute to one of the early heroes of Pyrenean exploration.
cheers Johnnie

Thank you, visentin

Thanks for posting such a complete article about (in my opinion) one of the most interesting characters in Pyrenean history. Great job.

great work, eric

This is a great page, really well put together. A lot of stuff I didn't know before.

A good read about a great person.

Re: great work, eric

Thanks ! Yes, Russell was really unique. I recommend you the reading of his "souvenirs of a mountaineer" if it's available in spanish. Lots of delicious accounts of his adventures in the spanish Pyrenees during these early times.
