Experiencing Interruptions?

Revers Gagnant, a friendship beyond the peaks.

In fall 2020, while the whole world is paralyzed, Pierrick Fine and Symon Welfringer organize a remote expedition in Pakistan. Their focus is on the Sani Pakkush, which culminates at 6953 meters, and whose south face, 2500 meters high, remains unclimbed. They will be among the only ones to eventually leave for an expedition at the end of the year 2020.

The unbreakable bond between Pierrick and Symon has largely contributed to the success of the expedition. It would not have been possible without their determination and their ability to bounce back. They knew how to adapt to the circumstances and to use all the technological tools at their disposal, both in the preparation of the expedition and once on site.

In spite of their technological arsenal, the laws of nature forced the team to be humble and put the two climbers to the test...

This year, the ascent of "Revers Gagnant" by Pierrick Fine and Symon Welfringer was distinguished by the Piolets d'Or, an annual event that honors alpinism.
