La Vie au bout des doigts

I just came across an online video of "La Vie au bout des doigts". This is a short film done in 1982 by a dude called Jean-Paul Janssen about another dude called Patrick Edlinger.

Patrick Edlinger is probably one of the most famous climbers in France, if not THE most famous (I mean outside the climbing world).

I am not too sure if the guy was the first to climb whatever route or grade and frankly who really cares? He inspired many kids of my age and just like Ben Moon or Lynn Hill, he became a legend.
