Monique Forestier on Tom et je ris, Verdon

13.02.2012 by Planetmountain

The video of Australian climber repeating Tom et je ris 8b+ in the Verdon Gorge, France.

"The most magnificent tufa in the Verdon." This is how Martina Cufar described Tom et je ris, the beautiful climb established by local Bruno Clement on the Rivière Gauche in the Verdon Gorge which the Slovenian repeated in 2008. A year prior to this repeat Australian Monique Forestier first attempted this famous 60m line but success was postponed until her return to France in October 2011. Here's the video, filmed by photographer - and husband - Simon Carter.
