Swiss climber Marcel Remy is approaching his 95th birthday but still lives for the excitement and fun of life. In August 2017 he climbed the 450 meter north-west face of the world famous Miroir de l’Argentine in western Switzerland—a face he believes he has climbed more than 200 times in his life. The team take the Voie Normale route for three pitches, then join the Directe route to the summit, with an overall grade of 5a (5.8).
