Some nice climbing quotes
Reinhold Messner, born in 1944 and raised in the South Tyrol's Villnöss Valley among the Dolomite mountains of northern Italy, is simply one of the greatest mountaineers of the 20th century. Is famous for making the first documented solo ascent of Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen.

On the occasion of the 36th anniversary of the first winter ascent of Everest, I wrote a short text about this expedition. I hope you find it interesting due to limited information available in English online. Feel free to link it.
First winter ascent on Mount Everest by Andrzej Zawada's team was also the first successful winter expedition to any of the peaks above 8 000 m. After 1980 Poles did nine first winter ascents on 8000 metre peaks. Only two mountains remain unconquered in winter conditions: Nanga Parbat and K2.

The earth has lot of spectacular mountains. Some of these peaks are famous, while others are not as well known. This list of 57 amazing peaks is quite nice. No mater that you're a mountaineer, or just traverel. You will find tall mountains here and mountains which more than make up for their smaller size in terms of their unique geometry.

Nice route on Tofana :)
Constantini-Apollonio route VII+ on Pilastro della Tofana di Rozes is the most famous route in Cortina di Ampezo. Almost 600 meters of climbing. Rock with good quality. You must be comfortable on grade VI+ Trad climbing in limestone. Route has 3 crucs. First is roof VII+ (you can aid), second roof VII and chimmey pitch VI+ (very endurance and quite often wet).

Real climbing is in mountain :)
At the end of September 2014 Pavel "Bača" Vrtík and Dušan "Stoupa" Janák climbed the north face of the Grandes Jorasses, the Alps, France-Italy border. They repeated a line called No Siesta with a four pitches variant to a Bonatti-Voucher line (because of a lack of ice). On the route they spent two nights and endured one snowstorm.
