Vanessa François and her dream

06.08.2013 by Planetmountain

Vanessa François talks about her dream and her project in the wake of her climbing accident which left her disabled: to climb the Zodiac on El Capitan in Yosemite.

Despite a terrible accident in 2010, Belgian climber Vanessa François has never stopped dreaming. On the contrary. Her desire to climb big walls is stronger than ever and this autumn she's aiming for the most famous big wall of them all, El Capitan in Yosemite. The route she has chosen is Zodiac and the project is, understandably, massive and she will be helped by three excellent friends: Nicolas Potard, Marion Poitevin and Liv Sansoz.
