For three days, images taken with a telescope transmit live on the Internet an attempt to open the West Face of the Drus. This is real mountaineering, with its slow rhythm and the suspense of live broadcasting. This broadcast was perhaps a first, a nod to what Desmaison, Flematti and others were doing on the radio 50 years earlier.
But the mountaineers are far away, very small, in this emblematic face which evolves according to its landslides. What really happened? Was it really an opening? What were the conditions, the difficulties, the dangers? Why did it take them so long to complete the last pitches? How did they cope with the terrible wind that swept across the face?
Close-up, on an adventure, two steps from their office, for four members of the high mountain military group: Léo Billon, Jordi Noguère, Thoma Auvaro and Sébastien Ratel.
