The historic monument film ESCALADE VERBALE by Jean Kanapa is online!

For climbing lovers …

We dive into the 90s with this sociological report around cliff practice and the opening of tracks. Unpublished images of some great names of the time, unusual and spontaneous moments captured by Jean Kanapa that make this film a masterpiece. We never get tired of watching it! You will also see that the problems of time have not changed too much …
