This video just irked me, not enough of the actual mountaineering, that voice over grated and the video was too 'whatever it was that irritated me enough to move me to post'.
Of course it may be me being grumpier than usual with a bad back but I think it was pap.
I actually thought it was a really good little video, especially the unusual long zoom shots giving a great sense of scale. Just wished there had been more of it.
However, the commentary was very irritating and commercially orientated. "Peak project", my arse - is that what most people call a hit list?
Apparently they are Mammut Proteam Athletes on the Biggest Peak Project in History! Who on earth makes this bollocks up?
Having just watched it again, yes, the editing is a irritating - always cutting a shot before you've properly taken it in.
Agreed about the narration. I saw this a few days ago and sent it to a few UK contacts who climbed in the area in the 80s.
It was more interesting for the fact that this is a spectacular area that used to see a lot of hard climbing, particularly by British expeditions, but has been virtually off-limits for most of the last two decades.
So I was more interested in the panorama shots - which were too brief - and the state of the mountain, which looked surprisingly snowy, compared to older pics.
