Casarotto (1948-1986) was one of Italy’s top mountaineers of the 1970’s and 80’s with a number of solo climbs in the Alps, Himalaya, and US. He came to North America at least twice (1978, 1984) and describes those climbs here – Canada (Mont Gros Bras, Weeping Wall, Slipstream, Carlsberg Column, Nemesis), Colorado (Estes Park, The Diamond, Mesa Verde), California (Mount Watkins, Yosemite), Wyoming (Square Top Mountain), Utah (Monument Valley), and a 12-day solo ascent of McKinley’s ‘Ridge of No Return’ in 1984. This book was published just prior to Casarotto’s expedition to K2 during the disasterous summer of 1986. Following two attempts on the Magic Line route he was returning to base camp when he fell into a crevasse and died. In Italian, no English translation.
