The road between the Soleur and the Aubisque, where in 1951 William Van Est overshot the bend and ended up 70 meters down the mountain. His team-mates pulled him back up by knotting all their tubes into a rope. He was unhurt, and wanted to continue, but was eventually persuaded to go get checked over in a hospital. And the Dutch team was forced to pull out, because they had no tires left.

Stand under it and feel rock power from over 2,700 million years ago, before dinosaurs roamed the earth! HYDEN, Western Australia http://www.waverock.com.au/
