Be Inspired: Three Amazing Videos about Philippe Ribiere

Philippe Ribiere is one of the most inspiring climbers you might ever have the opportunity to meet.

Epic TV has made a three-part series about Ribiere and here is what they had to say: Ribiere was born with Rubinstein syndrome and abandoned by his parents at birth. His entire life he has tried to overcome his disability to fulfill his true calling in life, to be a professional rock climber. Ribiere is the original wild child, a man who is serious at times, but who has always done things his own way. As you’ll see in his rock climbing series, he’s passionate about two things – rock climbing and making love to just about anybody. This three-part introduction to Philippe will win you over and leave you wanting more.
