Really enjoyed that. Was nice to get the history and to see someone talking candidly about soloing.

But what's he done on grit?

(slightly bad taste but I couldn't resist it, a great video and glad he's back on form).

Looks pretty serious to me if you came off that, simply not an option. I enjoyed it, felt the vibe and enjoyed the low key build up to a smooth calm ascent of a line that could spit you off all too easily I suspect. Nice ;)
