    Michel Piola interview: climbing on Mont Blanc, the search and the story that continues

    The fabulous world of Babette, or rather Mont Blanc's marvelous granite climbing, starting from Envers des Aiguilles. Interview with Michel Piola, one of the most prolific alpinists in the world who, in more than 30 years of activity, has left an indelible mark on climbing. His routes are considered priceless, thanks to their intrinsic beauty and the style of their first ascent, above all in the Mont Blanc massif where even today the climbs are considered an important test for all generations of alpinists. In this rare interview with Maurizio Oviglia, Piola talks about his climbing and his continuous search for unclimbed lines.
