Likewise, very enjoyable. I liked how you left the music out for the final lead.
Really enjoyed it. More please!
Very good indeed. Well shot, well edited and very entertaining.
Super little film. Really enjoyed that.
damn it makes me want to visit utah!
fine little film
That was RUBBISH!
Only joking. Good to see some familiar faces. Going there myself next month.
Loved it, loved it, loved it!!! Very entertaining and British although I am a bit pissed!
Benny, you make me laugh "jen's boosters haven't done much boosting"
Awesome video Jenny, keep em up
Awesome movie! And so much better being focused on sensible grades and normal people, not the pros... can't wait to get back to the states :)
Cool. Much like many Brits' learning curve at Indian Creek I imagine!
Interesting to see that they adopted the American technique of refusing the advantages of climbing climb on double ropes, even when it means dragging the dead weight of a second abseil rope behind them.
That practice is so dumb. I once did a wandering line in the US and found myself battling rope drag while the second towed up a second abb rope. WTF
You obviously didn't also weigh yourself down with enough big slings round your neck and then enjoy having your runners below your feet the moment they are clipped.
At least the routes at Indian Creek don't exactly wander about, but when I've worked out that my eight blue camalots need to be placed four metres apart in order not to run out before the belay, I really don't want to be pulling through slack to clip the eighth one on the same rope as the seventh one while completely pumped.....
Precisely. Double ropes just aren't part of American climbing culture. They don't know what they're missing. Maybe one day they will see the light and start using them.
On the contrary, if your last piece is by your feet, you would be more likely to stand on the rope clipped to it than on a second rope last clipped to a piece well below your feet (it could be more readily flicked out of the way before jamming your toe in the crack).
Loved the video, nice work Jenny!
Much appreciated by someone stuck inside for work and staring through the window at a sunny day!
What a fantastic video, really enjoyed watching that.
Cheers for posting!
Nice one Jen Jen!
