It may occasionally happen to have a chat with someone and feel that we do not want to miss a single word of what they are saying, because it is so full of meaning. And so it was with Armando Aste, a leader of the Rovereto climbing school and a "master" in the deepest sense of the word, a master of life even before being a master of climbing. When we visited him at his home in an afternoon of lashing rain, we discovered a small museum gathering the memories of a thousand mountain adventures, and listened enthralled for a couple of hours to the stories and wisdom of a man who already had 85 springs behind him.
About a month later, as we went with our friends to retrace Via Rovereto at Campanil Basso, Armando's words were still echoing in our ears, and it really felt like we were experiencing again the openers' emotions when they attacked the yellowish cliffs on the middle band of the rock 50 years ago.
As for the route, the author's name is in itself a guarantee, and here too we came across a gem of logic and daring, on a flawless rock!
