You could hike to the tripoint every day. (btw, that's also the highest point of the small Italian part of Caravanche)

Next September I'm going to a conference in Slovenia, Brdo pri Kranju if I'm not mistaken: I'm trying to find an excuse to skip one day and climb Triglav

Remember that my invitation is still open if you want to master some of the summits here. People from all over the world come here to climb some of the most breathtaking mountains available - up to 3500 metres...

Thanks but... aren't you going to move to France?
In two weeks I'm going to Pustertal for 7 days of hiking

Directly on the other side of my mountains. Let me know if you intend to climb to the Pfitscher Joch. I'll come from the other side and buy you a beer...

Pfitscher Joch? They should choose an easier name for international use. ;-)

I have more plans than days ...but if I decide to climb Rotbachlspitz I'll pass there. But Pfitscher Tal is not really easily accessible from Pustertal.

Ok. I don't know about English, but I asked, because in Slovenian ("naslednji september") it would mean September 2015. For Sep. 2014 we'd just say "in September" ("septembra" in Slovenian ).

I envy Austria (and Italy) for its high mountains. Triglav is just 136 m short of 3,000 m.

There's ambiguity even within Italian: to me, "domenica prossima" ("next Sunday") means in two days (today being Friday). To Southerners it means "Sunday of the next week", so in 9 days...

My highest plan for this summer is Rocciamelone/Rochemelon, 3500 m and just 50 km from Turin

Measure them in feet: you get more impressive numbers.

In one episode of Family guy, someone said: "You converted The Biggest Loser to the metric system making it look like the contestants aren't losing enough weight!"

In the last week of July I will be near a 3,404 meter high mountain (Aneto), the highest in my area. That's only 10 feet higher than the Eisenhower tunnel on I-70 in Colorado...

Not necessarily. 3,000 m = 9,843 ft.

Meanwhile in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia



What a mess, and not a single crash! I can imagine what would happen in Russia in this situation...

Ugly crash followed by giant street fight. All caught by several camcorders at once. Post processed, enriched by hardcore Russian rap and uploaded on youtube.
