We finally managed to equip the whole climbing route that we had started to open last summer w/ Aster Verrier 🎉 It is a very varied route: compact slabs, dihedrals, cracks, vertical and traverse sections - 7 pitches, 250 meters high : 7a+ max, 6b oblig, on a new sector located in the former national nature reserve of the Saint-Pierre valley.
The route is situated in the Ecrins National Park, near Ailefroide - after getting a permit to explore the route on stoppers we have started to equip it with permanent protections on 2021.
This long vertical choregraphy comes as a concluding project to my research with ESAAA / Effondrement des Alpes, about the possible futures of climbing, the protected areas of Ailefroide and the Écrins national parc and links between mountain activities and aesthetic practices.
The trace of the route was visible as we go along, drawn with marker on a large print of the relief, in the exhibition "le visiteur, l'obstacle, la grâce" at CAC, Briançon.

In 2018, as part of the Annecy landscape festival, we introduced a pair of black swans into the Annecy lake, an ecosystem dominated by the Polish swan (white swan) population for several generations.
Following several complaints, the black swans were removed a few months later by the municipality.
