direct version of tears of a clown  #1, 3 kbTracks of My Tears avoids the traverse rightwards on Tears of a Clown, bumping the grade up to a tough E8.

Excellent effort. I spent a while looking at that line and it's completely nails with non existent gear. Turns a weird route into a proud line

it's yet to make the long journey from camera to internet. don't expect anything clever- only the two of us there and neither of us had a hand free for filming. more for evidence than entertainment.

That would be impressive - filming it on lead. Well done Alexis.

As I said above, this isn't for entertainment. There are no muscle flexing close-ups, no groin shots, no sponsors' logos, no tear-jerking background story, no interview snippets, no power-screams...not even an 80's rock ballad soundtrack. Sorry.

If you want to speed the process up, ignore the first six mins as it is an entirely forgettable sequence of the gear getting put in.
