Watch History of Drytooling and Hard Alps Sends

Watch clips of mixed climbing in the European Alps including an ascent of the North Face of the Drus. This movie talks about the history, evolution and future of the drytooling. “You will also see how much excitement dry tooling can bring. Dry-tooling now allows to free-climb some routes which were impossible to climb without aid in the past.

“To make this documentary worth it, we have spent two intense years of filming. From Chamonix to Italy, but also in Grenoble and in so many other places, we traveled a lot. We were looking for the most astonishing routes, awesome landscapes. Even though you may not be a climber, we wanted to make a film that you will enjoy watching.

“In fact, this movie is not just about dry-tooling, but it also aims at showing many dimensions of mountains, through the multiple aspects of current alpine winter mountaineering. It is the history of the evolution of the alpine practice through dry-tooling.”
