The Swiss alpinist announced it on Facebook this morning with the following post: “Yesterday we finished the 82 Summits.I am super exited. The morning yesterday started with a 3.5h detour. I missed the trail in the dark and i run up the wrong valley. Around 8.00 am i was back down at the Parking to start again, this time in the daylight and with already a good warmup! Climbing les Ecrins was just great, nice conditions. Today we heading down to Ceuse to celebrate and to see if we still can hold on on steep Limestone. I am still super psyched, i could move on…. lets see what comes next!”
