Autumn 2014. North face of Grandes Jorasses. Julien Désécures and Sébastien Bohin set off to repeat the Couzy-Desmaison route. The two climbers were revisiting this mythical line in an aesthetically pleasing and technically advanced style.

And just getting to Montenvers to see Les Jorasses can be dangereux!

The great physicist Henry Kendall was the first American to climb a major route on the Jorasses when he quietly did the Walker Spur with Gary Hemming in 1963. More about Henry can be found here...
