Destivelle was something else!

By Rock and Ice | February 25th, 2018

In this uber-classic footage from 1992, Catherine Destivelle, one of the greatest alpinists of her generation, solos the classic El Matador (5.10d) on Devils Tower.

She begins by rope soloing and plugging cams, but then later unties and free solos the rest of the way.
