Riccardo Cassin has passed away

One of the all time great legends of climbing, Riccardo Cassin, died last night aged 100. Riccardo made countless big first ascents in the Alps in in the 1930s and 40s before moving on to even bigger mountains on other continents. Vinicio Stefanello has written an obituary on Planet Mountain, you should read it cause in many ways we all owe this man.
