|Hello everyone, |
lucky to join a year 2006. Sadly, our friend and climbing partner
John Zazzara was not that fortunate. I miss him very much, and am
sure many of you who knew him share my feeling.
a website in John Zazzaraís memory and perhaps you would like to
drop a few words in his Guest Book about your experiences with John,
or maybe have additional pictures or stories that would enrich his
memorial website, or just spend a few minutes and browse the pages
to learn about him.
For those who did not know John Zazzara, he was a great guy,
a very good friend and climbing partner sharing his mountaineering
knowledge and gear with anyone. He organized enormous number of
mountaineering trips and invited whoever wanted to go. He was very
passionate about what he was doing. He conquered many mountains in
North and South Americas as well as in Europe. His craziness to ice
let him bring new mountaineers to the exciting and expending in
popularity vertical ice-climbing activity. He went for many trips
solo, but most often loved to climb with others. He died, however,
alone on Mt. McLoughlin (OR) in June 2005.
Iím going to
celebrate Johnís incoming birthday, which is on 16 of January,
somewhere on Mt Whitney.
Thanks a lot and climb safe,
Friend of Johnís
