I recently read an article on supertopo claiming that the "brotherhood of the rope" is a fallacy. If that's not an amazing counter-example, I don't know what is. My sincerest condolences to everyone touched by Giacomelli's life.

I would never climb with someone who believed that such a thing was fallacy. Ever! Climbers must be fervent, passionate, loyal and that pact must exist to guarantee personal dedication to the safety of one another even when the costs have to be calculated. Whoever would say such things would not share my rope. That would terrify me.

My condolences to his family and friends.

I have a different view of all of this. While I think it's admirable that his climbing partner took the time to find his body. (His partner was clearly dedicated) If it were me (as the victim), I would say "please, dear partner, do not risk your own life to locate what's left of me. I am dead, my body recovery would me nothing if you were injured or killed in that effort".

You probably don't know Elio Orlandi.
May a a research on the man explains a bit.
