A free climb is a refusal to use any artificial means to climb a mountain wall. When this wall is barred by overhangs and roofs, the attempt seems impossible. Patrick Berhault and George Unia are engaged on the wall of Bau of Saint Jeannet, inland of Nice.
In his long career as a director he has produced around fifty documentaries for television dedicated to mountains around the world. He has also made numerous works for the cinema, including “Momo le doyen” (2007), “Expérience africaine” (2009) and “La Pépinière du désert” (2011).
