This is one bouldering video I'm simply refusing to watch
Björn, was it the same film maker who got some criticism earlier this year of maybe last for using a photo of gang members (were they from Nigeria or somewhere?) taken by a photographer some people here knew? As I remember it the photo was a good one but didn't seem to have anything to do with the film.
This is a dangerous country! As are all "developing nations" I am not surprised they have side arms. Personally I would take an assault rifle or two as well for self protection. What do you do otherwise in the middle of nowhere when you are confronted with desperados? Phone the police? Ha Ha
Serious post this BTW
It was 'Progression' that they were playing with BB guns in. I must admit that I assumed this was a toy.
Although after the gun crime rate for SA in the Batman shooting thread the other day, I wouldn't blame them if it was real!
Fair enough, but why even film it then? A bit odd. Perhaps just in the light of some of the laddish posturing that you get bouldering videos it seems a bit silly. And I'm old enough to remember Moffat and Moon getting criticised for their wheel spins in Fontainbleau in the mid 90s! :)
Golden shadows - an excellent showcasing of two quite different approaches to the problem.
