THE EXPLORER
IN LOVE WITH THE ALPS

In August 1948, Walter Bonatti first donned climbing shoes and scaled the Campaniletto tower in Grignetta, Lombardy: this marked the opening of an amazing story.

Over the following years Bonatti became the mountaineer who hunted down and climbed “impossible” routes on the Mont Blanc massif. At the age of 35 he’d become the solitary and inimitable champion who, to everyone’s astonishment, shed the guise of great mountaineer and, in the wake of legendary adventure journalists of the past, became an outstanding writer, reporting from remote lands.

THE HUT

A MOUNTAIN HOUSE
OVERLOOKING MONT BLANC

Rifugio Bonatti can be reached in a little over an hour from Val Ferret by traversing larch woods and alpine meadows. It’s set at the foot of the Grandes Jorasses, directly opposite magnificent Fréboudze glacier.

“The mountains have taught me not to cheat, to be honest with myself and what I was doing.” Walter Bonatti”
