The Inertia

The Internet is a funny place. The old can suddenly become new in an instant. Say a video is posted on Youtube and has a run on that platform, then some random Facebook page–like Milky way scientists, yeah we know, Milky what?–posts a previously viewed video on its page and the video explodes again. That’s what happened this week when Nicolas Falquet’s line off the Les Marécottes last year for GoPro’s Line of the Winter showed up on said page. But we have to admit, this viewpoint is worth another look. Falquet billygoats his way out onto a series of ledges before charging off the face of the Earth–or more precisely, one of Earth’s most iconic peaks. So if you hadn’t seen this, take a look at this line.



Only the best. We promise.
