  • all my best performances.

  • I did it after my accident.

  • Okay?

  • Meaning I I became I became really famous aunt of the eighties beginning of the nineties, meaning I was already highly Andy CAPP.

  • I had my 66% disabled, right?

  • So your risks are your meaning.

  • My, my wrist, my nerves.

  • You know, a lot fix my I am having problem, you know, very good problems with my internal earrings on the left side.

  • So meaning or everything that I have done that is really relevant.

  • I did it after my worst accident.

  • How do you have these injuries and do these?

  • Amazing.

  • I fell head first.

  • 15 m actually hand first at the bottom of the cliff.

  • It was rocks.

  • So imagine the impact.

  • Both raised the completely smashed up, really destroyed in a in 100 pieces each also my elbows because my forearms work like short breakers.

  • And that most likely this is what saved me.

  • And then after that, I bent my head.

  • I was in a coma and everything.

  • 15 m.

  • Where were you?

  • In your I was at the top.

  • And then what?

  • What Bill?

  • What was a cliff?

  • We're actually in a in a new balance in the Khanna's.

  • Okay, I'm making very good wine.

  • Okay.

  • In France.

  • Okay.

  • So you fell 15 m down.

  • You brace yourself.

  • You break your wrists, everything's broken all the bones, and you hit your head as well.

  • I lost 45% of my blood.

  • I was my vital were really I was about to die, which somehow I didn't.

  • At one point, they were supposed to amputate my forearm.

  • I really did find very hard to I knew that doctors they said that no way I was going to climb back.

  • So Okay, just foot.

  • Fair enough.

  • Keep it for you.

  • And then once I was outside the hospital, I decided that I was going to find my own strategy.

  • And on the strategy was quite simple.

  • The very small step.

  • But every day, Okay, so a little bit better every day.

  • And then you climb some of these amazing free solo climbs afterwards.

  • Exactly.

  • That must be mind boggling for Alex Honnold to know that with limited risk motion, you did some amazing free solo climbs.

  • Okay, You know there again what it did by free slowing our capitan is also mind blowing.

  • What did you think when you heard he was going to try it?

  • First of all, I wanted to do it year 94.

  • But at that time there was no such a thing as a free rider.

  • You know, you have to understand there was a route Saturday wall, but at the wall it's unthinkable free solo because there is two pitches that are totally they are far too hard and they are totally and safe.

  • So it tried it a long time.

  • And then one day he found out that actually, it could avoid those two pitches, right?

  • And then I called this part of the El Capitan free ride, which is that kind of low slope with no handholds, that you have to just kind of hope that your feet stick, because if you slide kind of dangerous, right, it's kind of a combination with, you know that, you know, you worked on Free Rider like for two years, so he knew any single pockets.

  • But okay, today, you need to remove the rope and to do it without it's a different game.

  • Tell me about that mind game when you take the rope off because that's where Ah 100 climbers goes down toe one that can actually do it for real with no rope.

  • And that's why there's very few free solo climbers.

  • I think most likely it is something very mental.

  • It's like deep down you you you are You are accepting the ultimate death although this is not what you are looking for.

  • But somehow you are accepting it.

  • The ultimate death.

  • Yeah, if you shall not accepting that it may go wrong.

  • You cannot do that.

  • It's impossible.

  • All right, so you just accept that that could happen.

  • And then you just continue ur wishing that your your physical stamina, your mental stamina, your techno techno kids, shit technicality will make it.

  • But deep down, you also you cannot put it apart potentially are dead.

  • You know, when I climbed the hardest thing I did in the world Oh, you are 250 m above the ground.

  • It's 50 50.

  • You are really playing a hard game.

  • Why wait?

all my best performances.
