/ FRIDAY NIGHT VIDEO: Hard SL8, by Mark Reeves
Mark has a photography article coming up on UKC next week, blending hard slate climbing with abstract images from the slate quarries - watch this space.
He has edited a short film about slate climbing, which he describes:
"All the footage was taken several years ago now, but includes an amazing solo by Neil Dyer of The Untouchables, a F8a arete. The edit isn't flawless, but I don't think it's too bad for an afternoon's work. I hope you enjoy!"

Very enjoyable - thanks.
So that's where The Untouchables goes. I always wondered - on a strictly armchair basis - how on earth it climbed that impossible upper arete. Now I know.
