Here the image of the Everest peak: May the 24th 2010, Michele Enzio, Silvio “Gnaro” Mondinelli, Abele Blanc, Marco Camandona and Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner were the only ones, among 400 mountaineers gone up there this spring season, who reached it “by fair means”, without oxygen.
Michele Enzio, Dolomite guide coming from Piemonte, was the youngest of the group. Born in 1974 on Mt Rosa, he comes from a traditional family of alpine guides.
Fond of ski and paragliding, in 2006 he went to Himalaya gaining the Shisapagma peak, 8.027 mt with Mondinelli. In 2008, with Mondinelli and Marco Confortola, he took part to "Share Everest 2008” the mountaineering-scientific expedition of EvK2Cnr committee which installed the highest weather station of the word on the south hill of Everest.
That time he arrived at 8.600 mt without oxygen but he had to give up because of the weather.
“It was a great emotion coming back to Everest – says Enzio – and I’m happy to have done a new way this time!!”
Congratulations Michele from all the Dolomite staff!
