Luca Maspes & Co summer 2006 climbing exploration


Luca Maspes & Co climb 11 new routes in Valtellina during summer 2006.

Luca Maspes, estate 2006

Luca Maspes, free from imminent expeditions to the greater ranges, spent this summer exploring the mountains and walls close to home, namely in Val Masino, Bernina and Val Grosina. The Italian Mountain Guide climbed with a close-knit group of friends or alone and produced 11 new routes during his somewhat anarchic vertical ride.

Maspes stated "many of these came about as we fled the sultry heat from the valley floor, others were completely improvised during those days in which you just want to forget about everything and explore areas you think you know well but in reality a just beginning to reveal themselves. In moments like this you blindly trust your instinct or perhaps the description of an enthusiastic friend."
