Free Climbing Visuals from the Verdon Gorge
Posted on February 14, 2015

Video and Edit by Cheyne Lempe and Ben Ditto.

Earlier this week, through powerful words and images, we told the story of Katie Lambert and Caroline George’s climbing trip to the Verdon Gorge in Southern France. Today for a beautiful, visual break from reality we’re publishing this transportive video recap from lensman and editor extraordinare Cheyne Lempe. If this video doesn’t make you want to drop everything and head to the classic, sandbagged sport routes of this historic climbing location we don’t know what will. Sit back, crank up the volume in your headphones and enjoy.

The official recap reads: Eddie Bauer free climbers Katie Lambert and Caroline George climb with pride in the visually stunning Verdon Gorge of southern France, where classily run-out, sandbagged and delicate routes recall an earlier pioneering era of airy sport climbing. The trip involved high-grade free climbing on Surveiller et Punir and Pichenibule that Lambert had envisioned since her early training days in the American deep south and one that forced Caroline George to face her alpinist’s fear of falling on the atmospheric rock routes that made the towering cliffs famous in international climbing circles.

River, walls, and lots of air. The Verdon Gorge's immaculate rock has drawn climbers from around the world for the past fifty years.
