Piolets d’Or 2010 and the nominees are....

Its time for the annual event of the Piolets d’Or to revel the nominees. The Oscars of Alpinism. It will be interesting to see who gets on the short list but I have a hunch Bruce Normand, Kyle Dempster and Jed Brown will be on the list.

The life time achievement will be awarded to Messner and who can complain? What an outstanding alpinist who has been lead by style rather than blind ambition. It will be interesting to see who is on the list of nominations as you might remember I did a short list of some worthy candidates late 2009. I think we will see a few of the names from my short list.
