Good bit of High quality film with decent camera angles. The only thing I would say is that despite what you think it doesnít look good constantly adjusting the cameras focus, it looks amateur and detracts from the films topic! Itís okay to do it occasionally I.E. as a transaction between scenes but when you do it during the events and scenes within the film it makes it hard to watch and irritates the viewer.
I agree. The selective blurring to simulate the use of a tilt-shift lens is fancy and is a good laugh when it tricks the viewer into mistaking the scale of the setting, but using it in every single scene is gratuitous and started doing my head in very quickly. Plus the 'minituarisation' effect doesn't really work if you've got people in the shot climbing up rocks - OMG! Look at those tiny people! 1 inch tall and still doing 5.11c!
I'd have to agree with everyone above - nicely shot, but the editing and constant focus adjustment was quite off-putting. Not enough actual climbing was shown. It was like the photographer had just got a new camera and wanted to show off its capabilities. Looks like a really nice spot though. :)
Brother- Tycho, from Past in Prologue. According to Shazam anyhow!
thanks for reminding me what home looks like. Such a great crag, so peaceful compared to the chaos across the road, glad time was spent on the approach, as it can be as memorable as the routes if you get lost in peak foliage.
The songs are
Eligh - Dream Of Me
Tycho - Cloud Generator

awesome. I have been trying to update the RRG crags on UKC if you want to add any photos or routes, or if videos can be linked to crags
