Comici (1901-1940) was an Italian mountaineer considered to be the ‘angel of the Dolomites’ for his over 200 first ascents in that region. As one of the premier Italian climbers of his generation, along with Riccardo Cassin, he began the era of "sixth grade" climbing. He was the inventor and proponent of using multi-step aid ladders, solid belays, trail/tag lines, and hanging bivouacs, contributing greatly to the techniques of big wall climbing. He died as a result of a frayed rope during a training climb. This is a combination memoir of his life and climbs and a celebration of his achievements with contributions by others. Includes a chronological list of his ascents. In Italian, no English translation.
