I liked the way the word "CLIMAX" appeared at really dull moments.

To be honest I thought this was pretty boring and the soundtrack annoying.

Its no doubt impressive what he is climbing if you were there watching but in a video it doesnt really come across.

Yes that would be much better as the embedded videos don't show up.

In reply to Derek O: I think the fact that the he climbs so fantastic, with ease, and with much talent makes it boring. He makes it look sooo easy!

Just shows what I've always thought... Chimes is just a line of jugs!

Not the best video really. The soundtrack was really getting on my nerves and it's not really showing anything that Adam is doing in any great detail.

Oh and Raven Tor near Sheffield? Not really is it...

Fluent climbing accompanied by, yet again, another unimaginative irritating soundtrack which totally detracts from the images.

no-one has said this is a great video, but is certainly interesting to people who are familiar with the routes or just want to see 8b look like a path. stop your whinging.

In reply to big john: To be fair, I think it's great UKC shows us things like this, but seriously, how many proper moves do you get to see, it keeps flicking forward, watching him stand there getting ready to do a move, then flicks forwards again, making it difficult to watch his style.

Terrible video. Gave me a headache after a few minutes, couldn't finish watching it - too much flicking all over the place.
