“It’s a shame to get the rope out. Better to fall than get the rope out.”
Eh, I dunno. I think I’d get the rope out. The whole “living on the edge” cliche is obnoxious at this point in mountaineering and skiing. Yet, I’ve got to use it here. These guys are living so close to the edge that a sneeze could be deadly.
But, they’re clearly having fun and the places they go are stunningly beautiful.

“With peaks of over 4000 metres rising spectacularly from the valley floor, Chamonix is home
to an unrivalled history of adventure.
We join skier and mountain guide, Vivian Bruchez, as he explores his backyard on several steep adventures in a winter of exceptional snow, in the company of a few talented friends. Previously impassable and unthinkable routes become a tangible reality when skill, experience and conditions align.” – sebastien montaz-rosset
