Birth of this beautiful project

Climbing the 4’000m in the Alps has long been a dream. At the end of 2012, while enjoying a ski week in Zermatt, the idea ended up on the bucket list !

The initial idea was to finish it before turning 50. However, I didn't start until 2015, 150th anniversary of the 1st ascent of the Matterhorn, when I climbed one of the world's dream mountains.

A few changes in professional and personal life later, the goal is now to complete the 82 summits before turning 55.
