What are your three finest achievements in the mountains?

Every time i go to the mountains, something great happens. I don't have an unforgetable achievement.


Who do you prefer practising alpinism with?

I only climb with very good friends, of very different ages.


Your best experience, high up?

In 1999, when i saved my rope buddy. We were in the lantang valley in nepal. He now has 23 screws in his face.


And the worst...?

In 2008. We’d travelled to pakistan to save our friend, who had a broken leg and was near the latok group. But it wasn’t possible to save him.


+ What do you like doing when you’re not in the mountains?

I try to practice mountaineering as much as i can, when i'am not i like to think, write and read by the fire.


+What’s your involvement with the millet design centre and in product development generally?:

The main reason i’m a millet technical adviser is because i like the brand. So i try to contribute my mountain experience to enhance the quality of millet’s products.

How do you see your discipline evolving in the next few years?:  

I think it will evolve in two directions: specialists using highly technical equipment, and a wide base of users who are more guided by value for money. And quality: marketing, innovation, environmental aspects, etc.
