A little late I finally got around fixin' up some shots taken during the "Saverio Occhi" memorial held on the 1st of September 2013 at the omonimous Mountain Hut "Capanna Saverio Occhi" in Val Grande, Brescia.

The whole thing started with a Ton of "Trippa" that cooked overnight, followed by a load of singing, drinking, Praying, playing, and just enjoying the incredible outdoors of this hidden and less known corner of the Italian Alps.

At 27 years of age Saverio was indeed a promise for the Climbing Community, he tragically died in 1992 during an ascent at the Western Lyskamm on the North eastern Face.  (Monte Rosa). He left a legacy made of people that loved him and still care to this day. 

The hut was rebuilt and dedicated to his memory. He is also mentioned in the new Documentary directed and produced by Marco Preti in "Compagni Di Cordata" presented only a few weeks ago.

Soon we will be posting a short video of the day and hopefully we'll see some of you this year !! 

"Capanna Saverio Occhi" is always open but to spend the night is advisable to call Pro Loco di Vezza d’Oglio - tel. (+39) 0364.76131.

5 Euro per night, 2,50 euro to use the kitchen and Gas, 5 euro to make use of the wood for the fire.

Enjoy the pics and Get there if you can !!!  It is worth it.
