Sharma goes Back to the Future on “Magie Blanche” (8b+) 1986


Sharma-Magie Blanche

Just outside the town of Mouriès, France, in the small Alpilles Mountains, sits a legendary iconic route from the 1980s called, “Magie Blanche” (White Magic). This twenty-meter-high dead-vertical wall of 8b+ (5.14a) has little in common with the routes typically scaled by today’s sport climbers. On October 16, the best among them took on the challenge. Here is the story of a truly unique encounter!
