GIOVANNI AMBROSETTI

GIOVANNI AMBROSETTI
Bio

Alpine guide and national CNSAS (Italian Mountain and Cave Rescue Team) instructor from Varese. The story goes that once, in Verdon, Giovanni found himself swinging under a 7c overhang. His friend Beppe Dallona tried to help him by throwing a rope, but it was windy and the rope flew in all directions. Beppe attempted to weigh it down with a rucksack full of stones (the rucksack also contained his camera, a detail he had forgotten) but it didn’t work and the whole lot ended up on the canyon floor. So Giovanni, aka Rosco, had no choice: dejected, he climbed up his own rope, using the laces of his mythical Mariachers to make prusiks.
