Avaatara – Free Climbing the Magical Sinkhole

David Lama Avatar

David Lama achieves first ascent of the Baatara gorge in Lebanon.

“If you travel roads that have already been discovered, you are basically always just following. But if you go somewhere where no one’s ever been and do something no one’s ever done, you’re on the lead and that’s one thing that I really like.” David Lama’s guiding philosophy has already taken him to the most impressive mountain ranges of the world and, more recently, to the Baatara gorge in Lebanon. A surreal ‘Avatar’-like landscape, unexploited and untouched.
