My ultimate climbing hero. So far ahead of his time - along with his brother. I always got the impression he was a little bit stronger!

Yeah apparently Marc was the stronger one and Antoine supposedly had better technique - not that you couild really fault Marc's technique. I watched Antoine attempting the FA of La Rose one evening way back at Buoux and its a memory that's inspired me ever since. Climbed with Marc at Smith a bit. Apart from a great climber he is also a really nice guy with a great sense of humour and very charismatic. It was hilarious watching him charm his way out of a speeding ticket on a trip to Bend one day. He was telling the cop how nice the police in America were in his french accent. A french version of Jerry Moffatt I'd say.

Classic photo. Amazing climber. Such a shame his test piece problem L'Alcheimist in Font was vandalised.
