Unfortunately, some awful news (nothing to do with the Compressor Route). "Enzolino", whose real name was Lorenzo Castaldi, 40 years old, died this morning during a (for him) routine ascension of the north face of Ortles. He was avalanched together with three other climbers. He and a 35 years old Spanish man died, while the other two survived.

Lorenzo was born in Sardinia, but he has moved from many years to Zurich, where he had married. He is survived by his wife and a two years old son, Manuel. Despite not being known outside Italy, he was an excellent all rounder with a prestigious resume as a rock climber and mountaineer. He was well known into the Italian climbing community because of his talent and his energetic and often abrasive personality, and I believe he'll be greatly missed.

Well, that was about the last thing I was expecting when I clicked on this thread again.

Terrible news.

Damn, this story is getting truly epic.

Luca Signorelli, perhaps you would consider putting up an Enzollino appreciation thread so we can learn more about him. I know I appreciated his input and perspective here on SuperTopo.

Sorry my english is bad.
Rolo hace 5 a˝os quiere sacar los clavos pero buscaba la forma mas limpia,para que los clavos salgan de los agujeros,ej:extractor de clavos a rosca,un elemento usado por mecanicos para sacar bujes.Intent˛ hacer esto pero fuŔ imposoble,porque rompe los bolts dentro de la roca dejando un residuo metalico dentro de los agujeros,esto hicieron Hayden y Jason ,"Romper" y "NO" Sacar los clavos .
De los 102 Clavos por lo menos la mitad fueron rotos,NO Extraidos ,iniciando la oxidaci˛n de los mismos y la porterior liberaci˛n de partýculas color "OXIDO"
Ellos mienten,no limpian Monta˝as,solo buscan Fama.
Rolo tambien querýa Arruinar los planes de Lama.
El Manejo de la informaci˛n de los medios periodýsticos fuŔ muy malo ya que se utiliz˛ la opini˛n de Rolo,como la verdad absoluta.Pues ocult˛ informaci˛n,Y Alpinist magazine publica solo fragmentos de las entrevistas a Locales guias y escaladores extranjeros,quitando la atenci˛n de la verdad.Usaron clavos de Maestri para bajar hicieron solo una variante de salida a la cumbre,no ruta nueva.Espero se arrepientan de lo que hicieron y pidan perds˛n publicamente.Matias Villavicencio

solo una variante de salida a la cumbre

He soloed a variant of a cucumber salad?

Seriously, can someone translate please? If it were French, German or Chinese I'd do it.

in short (castellano)
Rolo wanted to pull the bolts with a nail puller. Hayden and Jason did not ask for permission. And they didn't "pull" a lot of bolts, but actually broke them, leaving them to rust (oxidize) on the face. Also, did it for fame, not to clean the face, as evident by the leftover rusting bolts on the mountain.

anyways, Im sure you can get more from google translate.

Alpinist published only fragments of the interviews with the local guides
and foreign climbers, leaving out the real truth. They used Maestris' bolts
to descend only making a variant of the descent, not a new route. I hope
they regret what they did and ask for foregiveness publicly.

I wonder if it is the same variant.
I soak the cucumbers in sweet rice vinegar with dill, and then add sour creme.



So sad about Lorenzo; just getting to know him.





So when are we going to get the definitive breakdown of what was chopped and how?
