Before Honnold, there was Catherine

Amazing video of Catherine Destivelle free soloing in Mali in 1987. Not only is the climbing awesome, I especially also appreciate the epic music and her seemingly boundless energy as she leaps down the hill after completing the climb.

Also, it makes me want to climb in tiny running shorts over a backless one piece swimming suit. That is all. Enjoy!
