If you're a climber you have probably dreamt of climbing the Aiguille Noire de Peuterey, if you're a wingsuiter you've probably dreamt of opening new wingsuit exit points -- Roch and his friends have done both in this video, and the result is STUNNING.
The Aiguille Noire is on the steepest side of Mt Blanc, on the Italian side. It took them 4 hours to hike up to the first refuge where they slept overnight at the bottom of the face. A 4am wake-up call gave them time for a 10-hour climb on the most loose, sketchy terrain any of these experienced mountaineers had ever seen. Roch and Erwan led the dodgy climb and finally reached the exit.
Being a first-ever jump from this site, they weren't sure it was possible. But hell, they'd come this far!
After working out the jump, they leapt off and fell at least 150m straight off, above a glacier, from the summit of Aiguille Noire de Peuterey -- and after a breathtaking two minute flight, they landed in the high grass near their cars, and went home with a smile on their faces ...
