That's a lovely film, really up-beat. Quite inspiring.
It's also kind of sweet - little bit of a bro-mance going on there. ;O)
In reply to deepsoup:
> - little bit of a bro-mance going on there.

In a very innocent and sweet way though. :)

I've been trying to get annoyed at them to justify my jealousy at the lifestyle I would like to share (how exactly do you do 'squeeze' skiing and mountaineering trips in between the climbing trips!? :) , but they both come over as nice chaps so even that's not working well.

Good work chaps. Cracking film.

Ha ha, same here. :o)

On the subject of the skiing - I'm very impressed with the camera technique in that bit, it looks pretty tricky holding the camera out on one pole like that but it gets great results.

Brilliant! I really enjoyed that - though I must confess to being a touch jealous. (Lunch break over... back to work!).

Good on you both - inspirational stuff.

In reply to nathanmurfie:

Yeah, I'm jealous too. When I had the time to do it, I couldn't afford it. Now I could maybe afford it, I don't have the time to do it! Good effort!

ain't that the truth

In reply to nathanmurfie: Nice video, but how do they afford a lifestyle like that? Rich mummy and daddy?
natetan - on 04 May 2012
In reply to EeeByGum:

Hate to disappoint but it is far from the case.

At the start I think it was more a case of making $1500 spread over 3 months in the US (inc flights), living as a climbing bum with the odd bit of finishing off people's pizza in restaurants.. After that they got jobs using their skills (ski-racing-coach/rope access) etc.

At the end of the day it is only attitude (or fear?) stopping you from doing anything you want.

Well that and families and mortgages and other such trivialities but I do agree with you.

In reply to nathanmurfie: Ah ha, I wondered who put all those body builder photos on the belays in riglos. I wouldn't promote this kind of thing but they do make spotting the end of the pitch a lot easier! Still there as of a few weeks ago.

What a negative (nasty?) statement!!

It's actually quite easy to do what thay are doing. Although I didn't do anything to the standard that they have done I managed numerous trips in the nineties on very little money. You just need a bit of drive.

3 golden rules:

Dont buy a house and tie yourself to a mortgage

Don't get serious with a bird - for obvious reasons.

Don't put a career before your climbing.

Simple.

In reply to Enty: I agree 100%. If EeeByGum wants to climb more there nothing but him self to blame.

In reply to nathanmurfie:

Totally inspirational, superbly filmed and edited but most of all it completely epitomises what a really good climbing partnership is all about!

And the new bivvy ledge game of "Guess the spice drop"

Although, to be honest, it would soon start to grate with me if ever time I topped out my mate just leapt off and left me to carry all the stuff down whilst he was sipping beer on the veranda.

Ive just watched Bear Grylls Scotland this afternoon, looking back to this vid and thinking how entertaining it is and how dank and transparent BG is.

Sorry to bring the name BG into this thread

In reply to nathanmurfie: Great stuff! Enjoyed that a lot, it embodies all that is best about climbing in a short film - good friendships, laughs, adrenaline, beautiful scenery, great rock and packing the most into life in the short time we have.

To do that all this and live the dream does not need a rich benefactor. You just need to dedicate yourself to the cause, keep your possesions to a minimum, live simply and find short term work that pays OK and fits with the lifestyle. I've done it and know loads of folk who continue to do it on little funds.
