/ NEWS: VIDEO: Dave Birkett on The Brothers Karamazov E9 6c
Last week on Tuesday 5th June Dave Birkett repeated Dave Pickford's April 29th new route at St Govanís Head in Pembroke, The Brothers Karamazov E9 6c.
You can watch the video of Dave's ascent here at http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/
You'll need the very latest version of Quicktime installed for it to play - let me know if it still doesn't work when you've done that. You can get it from the apple site.
Nice video although very difficult I think to get the full impression of the route. It must have been hard to get the best angle to shoot from.
You might want to check your spelling of St. Govan's as well.
Yeah it was a bit of a nightmare to shoot, routes with little overhangs/roofs always are.... I corrected the spelling! For some reason the first version of the vid still seems to be up, I changed the text at the end so it was readable too. I'll try replacing it again later.
Fine effort from one of the best trad climbers in the country.
What does it say at the end Al? The writing is white on a bleached out background!?
Good vid, cant wait for the full dvd.
Can someone stick a copy of this up on YouTube please?
Plenty of us use communial PC's and can't upgrade software at all and hence can't view the video
