A dream come true for the stronger French climber

Even climbers have their dreams, their routes of pure climbing that they consider "myths" on which to try their skills. Here are the words of Christophe Dumarest  returning from the route Babel the "de Glandasse mountains", situated in the extreme south of the Vercors.

«Babel was the climbing route in France about wich I dreamded the most and it was the same for my friend Baptiste Derbhilly... We'd already heard and read the words of P.Mussatto about his master piece and didn't know if we'll be able to climb it one day. A trip around Suth Vercors and Glandasse but also on internal fight to read the rock and reach the belay of each pitch. An ascension as a "little death" to re born again on the floor, and see reality and nature as it is... beautiful».
