Daredevil Jean-Marc climbs to bm436

The bordercross 436 is a remarkable one: it is almost invisible, engraved high above the ground on this fierce rock.

Without paint or chalk, it’s very hard to distinguish cross and number on the rockface. You have to know where to look. I was very lucky in 2010 that cross and number were painted black at that time, faded away in later years.

Corinne Gourgeonnet visited recently this area in her quest to ‘do’ all esfr-markers – her project soon to be finished – and had her own luck. Her companion Jean-Marc dared to do some rock-climbing to chalk cross and number for her.

As you can see, the numeral 4 has been engraved in mirror writing, I have seen that more.
