When I was a kid I used to go climbing in the Alpilles or in Catalunya, everywhere cliffs were calling me. Patrick Edlinger was our star, he was the first one to go “free climbing” where nobody else did. Then there was this film shot by Jezan Paul Janssen, “La vie au bout des doigts” “Life by the tip of your fingers” and it changed everything, everyone started to see rock climbing as something different and cool. Patrick, thank you giving me what you gave us all, as climbers. And for the ones who don’t know that film, the most impressive starts minute 11…

in the past few years, Patrick ent less and less climbing and embraced his new passion: fly fishing. Patrick Edlinger 1960/2012
