Just watched this on BBC iPlayer, it's well worth a look if you are into walking in Scotland, not just a Munro bagger. Nick Crane of 'Coast' presents and Alan Hinkes ans Martin Moran are featured too.
Only thing I will say is that the ascent of the Inn Pin is a lot easier in my memory of soloing it in 1968 than they make it seem in this doco :-) Scared me to death to think about it while watching this :-)

In reply to Al Evans: Enjoyable programme isn't it. I always think that stuff like the Inn Pinn and Crib Goch etc are multi dimentional as they are a big deal for 'walkers and ramblers' but we are climbers and have conditioned our brains to exposure so much more so the climbs are mere scrambles for us. I have to force myself to remember that when taking noobies out too, a scrambly solo for me would be a huge undertaking and as close to the 'edge' as a noobie may ever have gone before.
