    Les Frères Ravier - L’aventure pyrénéenne

    Les Frères Ravier - L’aventure pyrénéenne

    Maryse Bergonzat (2007)

    Jean and Pierre Ravier have opened almost all the 'classic' (difficult) routes in the Pyrenees. Strung at the waist with a few flat knots and little material, the two twin brothers made more than 200 first ones throughout the massif. A unique style and commitment, a state of mind made up of adventures, literature, inventiveness and friendships. Unclassifiable and welcoming, after 60 years of Pyreneism, their desire for the mountains is intact. When does a race start? How does the idea, the desire come from it? What sense does it make to realize only the first ones? And what is the role of the Pyrenees themselves in this mutual and endless game of attraction?
