Last week we published an article on the beautiful Yorkshire gritstone crag of Almscliff. We sent our Chief Editor Jack Geldard out to research the piece (it's a tough job...) and following him around was Ian Burton from Image Impossible.
Despite strong rain on their arrival at the crag, Ian managed to capture some climbing on camera as Jack nipped up some of the classic routes as the wind dried the rock.
"There is an emphasis on shooting the biggest, the fastest, the hardest within the adventure film making world, usually a good story is enough. Filming Jack solo THE classic routes at a classic crag was one of the most inspiring things I've done."
In the video Jack solos the classic Almscliff routes of Overhanging Groove (HVS), Demon Wall (HVS), Great Western (HVS), Western Front (E3), Wall of Horrors (E3) and Big Greeny (E3) in a showery afternoon.
