Cracking wee vid.
Really enjoyed that. Was nice to get the history and to see someone talking candidly about soloing.
(slightly bad taste but I couldn't resist it, a great video and glad he's back on form).
Amazing. And nice tune to boot.
One of the most BOOOOORING videos i have seen for a while!
over 6 mins in before he climbs and is it me or is this like a highball ? looks about 20 foot off the floor ?
My verdict - shit sorry
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 ;)
