Catherine Destivelle is one of the greatest personalities of mountaineering and among the most renowned climbers of our times, both in France and abroad. Her popularity makes of her an excellent ambassador of the French Alps. Directed by Rémy Tezier, this film shows Catherine climbing three classic routes in the Chamonix area with three different groups of people, all of whom have had a profound influence in Catherine’s life. Stunning panoramic views of the incomparable Chamonix massif are combined with intimate and frank exchanges on belay ledges in the middle of the granite faces where Catherine is in her element.
