Lines / Lignes



Matthieu Maynadier, Pierre Labbre, Matthieu Détrie and Julien Dusserre have a new projec: to apply thier alpine technique in the Himalayas on a 7000m virgin summit in the most pure and difficult style. Throughout the expedition ‘Lines’ tries to answer the question “Why do we climb mountains?”. Why, despite the difficult conditions and fatigue, do our four guides from the Alps follow this dangerous dream into no man’s land with crampons to their feet? ‘Lines’ finds some answers from the past thanks to 150 years of alpine literature. In the role of the narrator and the experienced guide, Raymond Renaud speaks about his books and the conquerors of the useless, from the beginning of the century to the present day.
