David Chambre

David Chambre has always been passionate about climbing. While studying geography at the Sorbonne University in Paris, he first discovered the boulders of Fontainebleau and later the great alpine peaks of the Mont-Blanc Massif, including the central pillar of the Freney and the first free ascent of the Bonatti route on the Grand Capucin. During the 1980s, he was one of the first French professional rock climbers specializing in free climbing, free solos, and numerous French grade-8 routes. He eventually settled in Provence, where he shares his passion for rock with writing novellas and historical reviews for mountaineering and climbing publications.
