Some the wildest people I have ever met have been in Chamonix, noumerous people making attempts the ski K2 or Fripper whos goal is to ski Everest and K2 this year! Or most recently the Norwegian duo of wingsuit jumpers and their american friend who between being the leader in turbine technology makes money by jumping off large buildings in a school girl outfit. Respect!
Over beers one of the Norwegians and I got talking about the the Petite Dru and we decided to head up the American direct tomorrow the see if he could fly off of the thing. Unfortunately upon reaching the base it looked like the only jumpable section would probly not be reachable since it layed the massive rock scared area. So we decied to head up to the top of the rappable section and spend the night on the wall. The climbing was amazing! Cant wait to climb the route to the top. Sorry no photos the Norwegian has them.
