In reply to UKC News: This video would be much better if there wasn't about a million different repeats of each move from 5 different camera angles!

(Awesome climbing though) Good effort!

Agreed about the quick switching between angles, a few less angles and a little longer on each shot I think. Especially as the sountrack is this lovely little happy-go-lucky jaunt. Aside from the switching of camera angles I really liked it. Tells a nice story and brought a smile to my face.

I really liked that. Nice bit of climbing and good to know that I'm not the only person who has turned up, griped about the grading and then realised I was on the wrong climb!

What a disappointing video. The editing through the first half was terrible. Plus i was kind of hoping he was going to top out.

Fun and worth putting up. That said, and to continue banging my drum: how come this is reported whereas homegrown 8B first ascents (on actual rock) don't get a mention? Whilst I'm very interested in the world scene this is UKClimbing, is it not?

In reply to UKC News: he didnt even finish with two hands

In reply to UKC News: Really enjoyed that and the idea of green climbing. I agree about two hands and 3 second count for the full tick! Also someone should tell this guy he needs to keep his arms straighter! Is this the future of British trad climing!?
