One of the best climbers in the world clims up La Rambla.

Amazing climber that has about a 40-60 foot fall. This is actually Didier Berthod (climbing guru from Swizterland) trying to make the first free ascent of Squamish’s Cobra crack (5.14) in BC Canada in 2005 from the movie “First Ascent” by SenderFilms. Many have tried but until June 2006, nobody had been successful. Didier was going to try again in 2006 to be the first, but had a knee injury on climb day which left it up to Sonnie Trotter who actually completed the first ever free ascent of what is arguably the most difficult crack in the world. SenderFilms has asked me to included a link to their website: www.senderfilms.com From First Ascent: The Movie (2006) available at www.senderfilms.com
