Too bad we never learned who did the route in the first place.
A bit more climbing would have been nice, but a pretty good, interesting video to have been shot by just one guy. And I liked Mike Call's little joke at the end!

In reply to stella1: They did a 2 day ascent first to work the route, then had a rest day and sent it the following day.
