My dad loved the mountains, I too share the same passion as him. We never had a chance to share the mountains as he passed away when I was ten months old. However to climb the exact route as he did was just like climbing with him. It was like he was holding the rope for me.
See the video as a tribute to my Dad.

Thank you for sharing your journey to trace your family history and to follow your father's footsteps. It's very touching to realize that you were enjoying the same views and maybe climbing some of the same rocks as he did years ago.
