/ Cool ice climbing vids
Looked like quite a serious lead up to the cam? Good effort.
That was excellent! Cheers
I've never seen it but I'd like to.
The British footage from that period which I remember included a sequence of Eric Jones and Ron Fawcett climbing a frozen waterfall somewhere in Switzerland.
Ron was using a pair of reverse-curved Clog axes (I forget the exact name of the model) and, whilst he was leading off on a fairly-sketchy section, Eric commented something like: 'keep climbing like that Ron, and you're going to die'!

Some nice ice routes from tvmountain:
I especially like the poster´s comment under the video,
Has anyone got a link or a source for the Scottish Winter film 'Hot Aches' (not the film company of the same name btw)? I didn't see it when it came out and heard rumours it was good.
I think it was Kev Neal who made it- not sure if Nick Thingymajig was involved or not. Would be keen to see it if it was online somewhere. Cheers
So where can you see it?
