They risk their lives on the Breithorn glacier, in the Monte Rosa massif, at 4000 meters with jeans, sweatshirt and sneakers and without safety rope: what happened yesterday with a number of imprudent hikers, depicted in a shocked photo that became viral and also published by the National Alpine and Speleological Rescue Corps. The climber Victor Vicquery met a group of hikers completely unprepared to cope with the high mountain environment. "I have never met people in sneakers and jeans at 4000 meters – he tells us on Facebook – totally unaware of the danger they risk!" We tried to discourage them. "
"The mountain is an extraordinary place, but it is not a city park or sandy beach!" "Respect it!", Writes the National Alpine Rescue. "The first way to respect it – he adds – is to live with caution, well equipped and aware of his limits without fear of knowing how to forsake." (ANSA).
