Andrea Lanfri on the Everest

We didn't have time to greet him at the Annual Assembly last November, when Andrea Lanfri "ran away" again up the mountains… and what mountains. Not satisfied with the 4000, climbed with the "Five Peaks" project in 2020 and the crossing of the Rosa in 2021, Andrea "doubles" and takes home the conquest of Everest, passing directly from 4000 of the Alps to 8848 meters of the highest peak. high in the world.

The enterprise began on March 23, when Andrea left with his friend and mountain guide Luca Montanari, with whom he formed the consortium that brought him from the Base Camp, through all the acclimatization phases and reaching the fields. intermediates, to conquer the summit: on May 13th at 6:00 local time Andrea reached the summit of Everest, becoming the first multi-amputee athlete and climber to reach the summit.

Before the departure he joked about it: "I want to try to touch the sky with three fingers, and in my situation there is also an advantage: my feet can't freeze" and with great tenacity and hard preparation work he made it. A great example of tenacity, passion, willpower.

Great Andrea, a point of reference for all of us.

The Altavia 4000 PROJECT in Turin on March 11 h.21
(c/o CAI UGET, Corso Francia 192)

The dream of "collecting" the ascent to all the peaks above 4000 meters above the Alps, is quite common for mountaineers passionate about High Mountains.
The realization of this dream instead is very complex. With Nicola we decided to give it a try, we wanted to climb all 82 4000 of the Alps in a maximum time frame of 82 days.
For us AltaVia 4000 had to be a journey through the Alps, to discover new places, great mountaineering routes and our limits. And so it was.
We chose to move with our van, we moved here and there in the mountains in search of good weather and the best mountain conditions.

As evident to all, the trend of infections is constantly growing and it seemed to us that, at least at the moment, there were no conditions to organize this evening.

The event, therefore, will be organized on a date yet to be defined.
