I'm a freelance product designer for the Outdoor Industry and owner of Casa Alfredino, a climber and skiers lodge in the Dolomites. Not much good at climbing, but I enjoy it as much as I can. Frequently opinionated and frequently wrong.

Location
Col di Rocca nr Marmolada, Italy

Best Climbing Experience
Topping out on the Frendo Spur and the Drain in Val Gardena. Doing the Vinatzer on Civazes, the Dimai Eotvos on Tofana di Rozes and Cima del Cavalcorto... any route I've done in the Dolomites basically!

Favourite Climbing-Related Discussion Topic
All sorts. Not interested in TPS, E0, Bouldering or grade discussions.

About My Photography
I try - what can I say... Most of my photos I've put up because they are good memories, not technically that good.
