"This dose is a small prayer to what we have been given, words of thanks to the spiritual, thanksgiving for a time when man lived in harmony with the world, before the ego grew and asserted itself upon the natural world. When we communed with earth angels and natural spirits before the Great Seperation."

Josh Lowell's Dosage 3 DVD reviewed. Dosage 3 features Chris Sharma, Tim Emmett, David Graham, Klem Loskot, Ben Moon, Beth Rodden, Tommy Caldwell and Ron Kauk. Ryan also interviews Lowell one of the world's best climbing videographers.

Dear Mick

Are you a hippy? If, not, could you translate the above quote into something a normal person such as myself could understand?

In reply to Norrie Muir: I think he is suggesting that we buy it. Shame no one seems to sell it...

In reply to Richard Bradley:

"Infinite lessons in a vertical world" was one piece of drivel that stood out amongst so much else psychobabble in the Kauk section.

Saying that, the rest was excellent - though the Rodden / Caldwell section was stand-out, the lack of pretension and sheer enthusiasm for what they were doing was a great antidote to some other climbing DVDs.

Note to self: I must stop bitching about my non-functioning finger stopping me from climbing!

Oh and Sharma saying how he wanted to get stronger was highly amusing - surely that would not be possible!

Wow! Read the article and I agree with Mick!!! Must go and lie down in a darkened room and await the end of the world...

Sounds like Tommy alright. I had the good fortune of climbing in France with Tommy and then bouldering with him a couple months later at Hueco back in the late 90's. Really nice guy!!

Nice article Mick & I totally identify with the ethos of the film and your own vision of the lost soul, man and mountain. Keep on doing good stuff Mick. Thanks. Pete

In reply to Mick - UKClimbing.com: Nice one Mick, I agree with your review apart from the DWS section - I thought this was pretty poor, especially compared to the two Psicobloc doseson the previous Dosage, which set a very high standard.

Stand out parts:
-Trying to guess what percent spider Dave Graham is now.
-Chris Sharma's 'Iron Cross' move at the start of King Lion, absolutely awesome.

In reply to Mick - UKClimbing.com:

Given that I thought Dosage 1 was pretty rubbish (Lowell's commentary spoiling the film for me) and that, by contrast, Dosage 2 was one of the best climbing films I've seen, I wasn't sure what to expect from Volume 3.

Undoubtedly it starts (Thailand DWS - I'm looking into flights as we speak) and ends (I know we've seen a lot of Chris Sharma, but it is hard not to like the guy) very strong, but there were too many disappointing bits in the middle. The 'spiritual' bit is well-shot but Mick's review's initial paragraph about this section is spot on - I was fast forwarding on the first viewing.

There's no doubt that it's a good DVD but IMO I don't think it's as good as vol 2.
