"Solo" changes the reality of alpinism until that moment represented by hours and days of suffering, sacrifice and tragic deaths. Now mountain and mountaineering are life, joy and game! How much poetry and true love there is in his act when he saves a toad imprisoned in the rocks and lets it go, happy as his saviour, in a stream. The mountain as joy of life and conquest, faced as a solitary ballet amid the beauty of nature.
