All the music in the film, even if it wasn’t played on a guitar, was all developed from guitar, mostly solo guitar. So that very much inhabits the film.

@BruceHildenbrand read the article again. They clipped into Maestri anchors, not bolts, on the ASCENT, and at places where building their own anchors were entirely possible. Declaring their use of those anchors (and why) is good style.

Thanks for writing this. I really feel as though I know so much more about this than I did before. Your blog really brought some things to light that I never would have thought about before reading it.

There are many things should be taken into consideration, but you’ve made a good point here. Thanks a lot for that. I will follow your way soon.

His service to the world does not enter into the transaction any more than when you buy the latest novel of your
favorite author, or purchase a picture that pleases you, or buy a ticket to hear your favorite musician. We do
not pretend, when we do these things that we are ministering to the world, or that we are moved to spend our money
thus to serve God, even though there may be in the book, the picture, or the music, many things that will make the world better.

My excursion to tackle stadium number nineteen on the Quest for 31 took me to Oakland, California, home and head- quarters of Raider Nation - some of the rowdiest, most rabid fans in the National Football League. Raider fans are generally respectful of visitors, but if you plan to wear an opponent's colors, be ready for some of the most vile and vicious verbal assaults to be tossed in your direction. Most of these, of course, will feature a colorful collection of expletives just to drive their point home. Raider Nation is a proud union of die-hards so best believe that every member encountered will make you well aware that visitors are not welcome at Coliseum. Now on the other hand, if you join the collective, your acceptance is immediate and any verbal javelins you happen to toss at visiting fans will be met with hearty laughs and a handshake - what a bunch of sweethearts. In all seriousness, it is friendly ribbing and fans keep it under control.

Sono felicissimo per quello che avete fatto, era ora che questa meravigliosa montagna venisse liberata da quei vergognosi chiodi che profanavano la sua immensa bellezza. la montagna deve essere pura e l'alpinismo deve essere rispettoso della montagna. chi non sa salire il Torre senza chidi a pressione può stare a casa o salire la Presolana. Chi vuole salire usando un trapano o peggio ancora le trapanate di un altro, non capisce l'alpinismo e non capisce nemmeno se stesso. Grazie, grazie ancora ragazzi.


should not excuse ourselves from than ever, mountaineering and human, towards those who went before us.

I can not stop prasing this beautiful scenery, If I have the ability and the chance I will also go there to enjoy the natture and to be far away from the noisy city life.


It seemed appropriate, somehow, that by its existence the Comp' Route was a form of temptation - test yourself, resist, or succumb. Try to convince yourself you'd done a real climb, but know that you were always compromising something.

In many ways, Maestri's taint on that mountain contaminates the route to this day; his ghost* darkens the ridge and the hearts of climbers, so that no matter how the thing is approached, something bad and unsavory comes along. The mountain is great, and legendary, but that route is cursed, perhaps best left unrepeated and ignored, whatever one's ostensible style.

Good article ! As one that climbed that route I never felt proud of it because was too easy for a mountain such Cerro Torre. Now the magic is back ! Thanks K & K guys to have made the job ! Seba

Then, as mysteriously as they had come, the boom days departed. The mills, factories and shops that were going to be, established themselves elsewhere. The sound of the builder's hammer was no longer heard. The Doctor says that Judge Strong had come to believe in his own prediction, or at least, fearing that his prophecy might prove true, refused to part with more land except at prices that would be justified
only in a great metropolis.
