Catherine Destivelle - Solo Climb in Mali

This amazing video is about a world class climber named Catherine Destivelle and her freestyle solo climb on the steepest cliff in Mali.  Freestyle climbing means that the climber will use no ropes, tools or other equipment.  She just has the clothes she's wearing and a small bag of chalk which she rubs on her hands to get every drop of moisture out and help her grip.  It's unbelievable that she passes an ancient Pigmy burial ground during her ascent.  It's easy to see why they call her Catherine the Great.

Only the Mighty...
