Simone Moro
by Vinicio Stefanello
Simone Moro, Mountain Guide from Bergamo, Italy, has a particular and peculiar background.

In 1985, aged 17, he competed in Bardonecchia, the historic first ever sports climbing competition. After an extended period in the competition circuit he then moved on to coach the Italian team.

At the same time he started his Himalayan relationship and was drawn to mountains further afield.

His experiences with these lands and with other mountaineers, in particular Anatolij Burkreev,
left a profound mark.
