VIDEO: Paraglider Witnesses Gnarly Rockfall In French Alps (Rock Launches Horizontally)

“Today 11.25 am, while flying in the garden, I see a little rock fall above the Gypaète couloir, nothing scary for the time being but a few seconds later, it’s a huge moutains section that has collapse… The sound is loud, the stones bounce everywhere and the tress are like bowling pins… The biggest stones end their crazy run near the paravalanche at the forest edge. Something to think about when you fly very close to the cliff.”

Incredible footage captured by paraglider Rémi Bourdelle while flying above Couloir du Gypaète the French Alps. Pay close attention to the trail of dust left by a boulder that somehow got catapulted in a horizontal trajectory from the near vertical face.  Never seen anything quite like that. Absolutely incredible.
