More importantly where can you get men’s leggings from?
Posted @withrepost • @theclimbingzine The most defining moment of his climbing career came in 1996 in the Verdon. He was rappelling in to climb the classic Pichenibule, and at a hanging belay, they pulled the ropes from the previous rappel. The knot joining the two ropes got caught in a crack, and he rushed the process to free it, tying in to the free end and getting belayed up. He unstuck the knot and rigged the rappel, again in rushed manner. Then, as he was rappelling down, the unthinkable—he rappelled off the end of his rope. He had hastily forgotten to re-equalize the knots back at the anchor.
He fell by his partner, Emil Mandysczewsky, hitting him, which slowed the fall.
Somehow, someway, like a cat that always lands on its feet, he caught a foothold, and then latched onto the wall. The ground was over six hundred feet below, certain death, and if not death, worse than death. His ankle was broken in the impact. He had fallen almost sixty feet. Still, he managed to claw his way to the belay, and the two climbed out, broken ankle and all.
Od wczoraj jestem na Lazurowym Wybrzeżu, a już dziś zaliczyłam skok w bok z... Prowansją 💜 Razem z dziewczynami wybrałyśmy się na wycieczkę do Kanionu Verdon, podobno jednego z najgłębszych w Europie 🏞
Pół dnia jazdy po serpentynach (z obłędnymi widokami, ja absolutnie się jarałam, moje towarzyszki podróży trochę mniej, haha), a potem dwie godziny rejsu po rzece Verdon 🚣🏼♀️ To był jeden z lepszych dni od dawna. Woda była turkusowa, wręcz zielona, a naszym jedynym zadaniem było napawanie się jej kolorem i otaczającym nas pięknem... Więcej widoczków zobaczycie w moich Insta Stories, a poza tym na pewno jeszcze Was zaspamuję tym miejscem. Bo warto 10/10 💟

😍 A Perfect Day ♥️
We walked along the gorge and found a perfect place to spend the day, just us in complete peace ☀️ for such a hot day it’s always nice to find somewhere to swim and this is definitely the spot to do it 🏊🏻♂️ Can we just live here for ever? 🚐
So much ♡ for the beautiful town of Cotignac, where we stayed close by the Gorges du Verdon. Here are some of my favorite 📷’s..

"One of the greatest spots we have ever seen in Europe 😍 When we first drove over this bridge we were gobsmacked. The colour of that water and the gigantic mountains set the scenes for the best paddle boat ride we ever did. We never knew this existed and now we have been up and down that canyon and never wanted to leave. "
