It was a won­der­ful hu­man ad­ven­ture, full of sol­i­dar­ity and en­ergy. Here is how we could tell the ad­ven­ture « El Cap solely withs arms ». Vanessa François be­came para­plegic af­ter a moun­tain ac­ci­dent. She nev­er­the­less climbed Zo­diac on El Cap­i­tan, us­ing only her arms strength, in five days and four nights, to­gether with Mar­ion Poitevin, Liv San­soz and Fa­bien Dugit. They all had the feel­ing of a big power in­side their team. They made great meet­ings with people who helped them, and were lucky to climb El Cap when only a few climbers went to Yosemite: the shut­down had closed the amer­i­can na­tional parks… Liv San­soz Photo by Ni­co­las Ha­iron/Al­ti­tude Films.
