Pollux (4,092 m) is a mountain in the Pennine Alps on the border between Valais, Switzerland and the Aosta Valley in Italy. It is the lower of a pair of twin peaks (Zwillinge), the other being Castor, named after the Gemini twins of Roman mythology. It is separated from Castor by a pass at 3,845 m (12,615 ft), named the Passo di Verra in Italian and the Zwillingsjoch in German. Together with Andre (our guide) and James I climbed the Pollux on September 14.

Last week I went on a three day tour to the Monte Rosa massif in Italy. I met up with Andrej and our guide Ivan in Brig and together we drove 4 hours to Alagna, Italy were we took the cable car up to Punta Indren. From there we hiked an hour up to the Montova hut.

So on January 25, 2011 I realized a long time dream. Dive with a great white shark. Seeing the greatest and one of the oldest animals on the planet is truly a unique, awe-inspiring and a humbling experience.
