Happy New Year!!
Cheers for that.
Cheers, great vid!
Shout out to all climbers who race their vans!
Really good, thanks!
I wonder how many people there are that can climb 9a these days...
Thanks for the link, that's an excellent video.
Great recovery at 15:48!
Incidentally, can anyone point me in the direction of another great sport climbing video I saw about a year ago of a guy, possibly Spanish/Portuguese, who was obsessed with climbing another 9a route.
The climber was 50+ years old and seemed to live a very hermit-like existence with his partner. From memory it was all shot in black & white and had a real 'art house movie' style about it. Probably about 10 minutes long but beautifully shot and edited, much like this one. I don't think it was subtitled.
I've had a hunt through the Video section here on UKC, but couldn't find it. Any help gratefully received.
I remember seeing it. I think it was manolo on a 9a route called Eternit.
Cheers, that sounds right!
Unfortunately, when I search for it, it appears the video is no longer available.
Just discovered it can be bought online here:
I could well be tempted as I remember it being fantastic and really inspiring....
