Banging list of routes
Rad video of a well-cool looking route for gritstone. I'd like to see the video of someone seconding that route...
Haven't you missed of one of the more impressive ascents this spring from pittaker though? - That new H8 arete up Kinder way which Sam Whittaker said was nails/ impossible?
Where's bird brain at Nesscliffe?
nice vid but a little on the over-saturated side!
It did not get me at all.
Let's have some sound of the climbers, breathing, words etc - preferable to the lift music.
Thank god you guys published this before someone gets hurt ;o) http://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=2785
Nice one guys, cracking set of routes.
Nice collection of routes lads, good effort.
On a point of pedantry the Elm St ascents are (at least) the 5th and 6th. I did the 3rd ascent and Toru whatisface did the 4th (as far as I know).
Old bolt studs hooked over with a small wire at a guess (it it on Silent Spring anyway).
... I think Unclesombody did the second ascent of Power of the dark Side.
Great effort, it looks amazing, and enjoyed the video too.
What a pleasure that vid was. It's nice to see a traverse line now and then.
What a beauty! You write don't you Niall? : )
Niall, Keeg and Boothy - thanks for that info. Always good to know. Would be nice if there was an easy logging system for harder grit routes that everyone used so we'd all know what had gone before...
I even heard that mine and Pete's ascents of Ray's wasn't the 5th and 6th because somehow Tim Glasby's name had been left off the list of ascentionists! Was his the 3rd???
Anyone know the name of the music track and group??? Pleasee...
> Would be nice if there was an easy logging system for harder grit routes that everyone used so we'd all know what had gone before...
A universal system that everybody used faultlessly would be nice, but then so would world peace... :O)
It seems information tends to percolate through eventually anyway, probably even more so nowadays with the internet etc. And anyway as I said t'was just a point of pedantry.
Steve Allen (Leicester chap, made it a mission and won) in the early 90s?
Chris Plant late 90s?
The track is indeed UNKLE - Reign (Psychonauts Remix) from the album Never Never Land Revisited.
Thanks for the comments on the video. I agree it may be on the over saturated side in places and I would have liked to have picked up some of the exclamations from Ed as he made the moves up the arete but it was just too dam windy!
Thanks for that!
