Piz Badile North Ridge at 90

Walter Belina Mountain Guide of Chur (Switzerland)

28 July 2009       Walter Belina is a swiss High Mountain Alpine Guide based in Chur, Graubünden. The extraordinary is that he is  born in 1919 and few days ago summited Piz Badile via   the Nordkante (North Ridge).   Walter Belina is a Mountain Guide since 1945 and during his long career climbed everywhere in the world, included US, former Urss, Africa, Canada, Boliva, Romania, former Czechoslovakia and Nepal.   In 2005 July, at 86, he had summited Piz Badile, again via North Ridge: in that occasion the Swiss TV Schweiz Aktuell made a video. He wrote several books about Pizzo Badile and the mountains of his canton, that he loves in very special and deep way, as  Badile, Bergell und Belina - Geschichten und Bilder aus dem Leben eines Bergführers and Wandern in Graubünden.   The North Ridge of Piz Badile is a climb not  difficult (max 4+/5°) but very long (1200m) and  is often referred to as one of the finest rock climbs of its grade in the Alps.   Congratulations Walter: at the age that normally it is difficult to walk, you performed an important ascent.   ms video Walter Belina Piz Badile 2005: click "grenztour am Pizzo Badile"
