The Alps' 82 Biggest Peaks in 102 Days

There are 82 peaks over 4,000 meters in the Alps, and during this winter season Slovenian Miha Valic climbed all of them. Valic had hoped to summit all of the 4,000-meter peaks in 82 days, during the calendar winter, but bad weather forced delays. Climbing with many different partners, he completed 74 peaks in 82 days, and then added nearly three weeks to his schedule, wrapping up the 82 peaks in 102 days of the winter season, from December 27 to April 7.

Valic maintained a blog during his adventure with good photos. Find it at
