'...Jean-Christophe Lafaille
High-altitude mountaineer who repeatedly cheated death on his ever more audacious climbs

Jean-Christophe Lafaille, mountaineer: born Gap, France 31 March 1965; married (one son, one daughter); died Makalu, Nepal c27 January 2006.

On 31 January, when Jean-Christophe Lafaille had been missing for a week, his base-camp support team concluded that he must have perished in his attempt to make the first solo winter climb of an 8,000-metre mountain, the 8,485m Himalayan peak Makalu. Last Saturday his wife flew over the mountain by helicopter and confirmed that there was no longer any hope that he would be found alive...'

JCL on drytooling ...

'...I also adore the beauty of the lines of ice which stretch along the Alpine or Himalayan rock faces.
These imposing or ephemeral frozen pathways take me today up to the highest summits of the Himalayas where I am at my happiest.
More recently Iíve discovered dry tooling. This hybrid sport has been a revelation for me and a fantastic bridge between the winter world of ice climbing and sport climbing.
Iíve rediscovered everything I love in climbing: physical barriers, the continuity of effort with the possibility of continuing until one falls which contrasts with the essence of ice climbing.
I love being able to switch between ice and rock and Iíve always loved athletic climbs which go up impressive overhangs; dry tooling gives me all of that!...'

Why do you feel it's a private conversation on a public forum?

Yeah, yeah, I know.
>if you have to ask the question you probably would not understand the answer.

BTW, I would be more interested in a day by day 'routine' for your & Mouses cyber-ascent of Cerro Torre Hexy.

Your comment demonstrates insensitivity in light of recent tragic events, (and a lack of understanding in more than one area).
Chockstone can do without it.
