Franco Perlotto, Guardian Of The Rifugio Boccalatte & Legendary Italian Climber

The Boccalatte hut is a great base camp from which to make the ascent of the Jorasses, or, for the only other team there, to start the traverse to Hellbroner via the Jorasses, Canzio bivi hut and Rochefort Ridges. Franco has some great stories about climbing with the likes of Cassin, Doug Scott, Joe Tasker etc etc.
