A double dose of adrenaline for one of the MXP

Double dose project is a combination of two different techniques of mountaineering : free climbing (climbing fast and "clean")and paraclimbing (BASE JUMP in a natural mid ). Jérôme Para and Antoine Bayol, accompanied by Bertrand Delapierre tell us their first multi-sport performance.

The projet begin with a little bit of disapointement. The first step in their projet was to combine both in the ascent , a free climbing session and in the way down a great base jump. The first summit was " l’aiguille du Fou" (3501m), departure point of their trip.

 

Unfortunately our two great friend realized the impossibility to string together climbing and base jumping for some kind of cliff. 

Therefore, in order to find a common lead for their projet their going to  put a picture up of climbing and jumping that is true to ourselves and their passions. It starts with a usual training spot and rises in intensity until the high mountains, alpine routes and exceptional jumps! ... with a preference for the beautiful lights and long jumps as well!

A video is going to be produced with all their climb and jump :

- Cap Canaille at Cassis: saut face à la mer:

- The ice climbing in Montriond:  «La Dame du lac» and jump at the summit
