Yeah, saw it last year. On a side note, it's how I found Broken Bells, Arcade Fire and the the XX; nice songs I reckon.

Amazing determination.

A bit like Doug Scott's epic retreat from the Ogre with two broken legs accompanied by a badly concussed Chris Bonington.

Yup that's the one.

Having dislocated and broken my talus bone (at stanage) I can only imagine what that guy was going through. He must have balls of steel.

Amazing effort

cheers

Nothing at all like that I would say.

Scott's ordeal was mountaineering in it's finest sense. This is just cragging.

Daft comparison. If that's all you can offer I would sooner you stay quiet.
