Pierre is no long with us, taken by what we call a long illness. He climbed well into his 70's. I haven't logged all the routes we did together but they were always memorable ! The photo was taken in the Russel hut near Cauterets, when, as usual, we were getting "an alpine start". For the anecdote, Pierre always scrounged water off everyone, only to surprise people by producing an excellent bottle of red-wine for the summit !

He looked a game old boy. Good on him.
