Patrick Berhault was a real vertical artist. In the course of his 30-year career he notched up a string of original achievements, spectacular firsts and major undertakings, but what was always impressive was his humanity, modesty and high ethical standards. His disappearance in 2004 on the slopes of the Dom deeply shocked the mountaineering community. Over and above his impressive achievements, what do we know about the real Berhault, a hero revered by several generations of amateur and professional climbers and alpinists? And why did he enjoy almost unanimous respect, in a sport in which jealousy and backbiting are commonplace?
