The planned line was to fly around Aiguille Grise, pass a ridge, fly over a plateau (with a hut at the end of the plateau), dive into a gully after the plateau then pull and land in the fields below. David exited first, followed by jumper #2 and jumper #3.
David's flight was slow, he passed the ridge lower than expected and flew quite low over the plateau. At this point jumper #2 was higher and in front of David. Shortly after, jumper #3 had previously breaked and dived hard to stay close to David, detached a little and decided to pull and landed safely on the plateau.
Jumper #2 stayed high and flew the end of the line as planned. David had then a few opportunities to perform an emergency low pull but decided to try to pass the plateau. He impacted about 2m before the end of the plateau, without having tried to pull, and tumbled into the gully below where he came to a rest.
