Sepp Hackhofer - Monte Pelmo
Monte Pelmo is one of the giants of the Dolomites. The 3168 m high mountain was firsted climbed in 1857 by Sir John Ball, who was an Alpine Explorer, Botanist and Politician from Ireland. Climbing a mountain like Monte Pelmo more then 150 years ago was a big challenge, as the equipment and the knowledge was poor. Today everything seems much easier, but these peaks and places have never lost their fascination. I especially like them with a light cover of snow, as they seem “sugared”.
