Looked like quite a serious lead up to the cam? Good effort.

In reply to TobyA: Ohh Toby that made my palms sweat for some reason, probably because I hadn't seen it before.

How about this classic, Kammerlander on MM;

In reply to coldwill: Besides petzls videos the video with Brad Heller climbing and falling of Palenville Coronary WI6, M7 trad, is the coolest and wildest footage Ive seen. Good soundtrack as well. Cant find it on the web now but maybe someone downloaded it?
coldwill - on 14 Oct 2012
In reply to DanielJ: I was looking for it as well. Can't seem to find nit either.
coldwill - on 14 Oct 2012
In reply to DanielJ: def one the best vids simply for the out there climbing. Looks like it was taken down for some reason.
In reply to Wee Davie: Yeah, I think quite a few Finnish ice routes are sort of the ice equivalent of gritstone - tricky straight off the ground and your doing 'proper' climbing at whatever level that is for you before you can get any gear in!
http://www.vimeo.com/38324774 it's the narrow ice pillar I was talking about.

In reply to DanielJ: In fact he seem to have received a fair bit stick for that video I guess from people who have never climbed anything Ike that.

In reply to coldwill: I think Alun hughes made a film of Welsh winter Climbing in the 80's. Tut Braithwaite in the Lead Role I think.
I've never seen it but I'd like to.

In reply to Jim Walton:

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'!

In reply:

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.
In reply to Wee Davie: Was that the one done by Nick Thingymajig from the GUM club in the late 90s? If so, it was available for sale at least at one point. I saw it but I think one of my Glasgow mates had a copy. It that's the one, I can enquire if any of me fellow ex GUM clubbers has a copy.
Wee Davie - on 18 Oct 2012
In reply to TobyA:

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

In reply to coldwill:

So where can you see it?
coldwill - on 20 Oct 2012
In reply to Wee Davie: think it's gone the same way as the Brad Heller film. It was about 40 minutes I think and I'm not sure if it was ever on the net. There were a few good Scotish climbing scenes and some classic conditions caught on film which definitely gave an authentic feel to it. You don't seem to get that so much on the cut and polished stuff you get now. Don't know anybody with a copy fraid.
