Re: Badile

Hey Digitalis,

I often read his trip reports on his site. He always talked honestly and passionately about his time in the mountains. For me he is an inspiration. We were on Badile a year after his accident. I was climbing with him in my thoughts, even though I didn't know him. It made me conscious about how precious life is, and how wonderful to experience beautiful mountains, like Badile. Happy climbing!
