Apologies if its been up before, had never seen this..

Scraping about for holds, poor soft snow placements as you top out screaming at your mate for more slack, but he can't hear you cos its blowing a hoolie on the plateau. Its like it really is!! Great wee vid..

In reply to Paul035: Excellent video, thanks for posting.

I'm never ever going to climb grade IX, but everyone can relate to the screaming for slack, the howling gale, and then flopping onto the plateau in a shaken mess.

Yeah, for my money the best of the batch of the last 5 years' climbing vids.

In reply to Paul035: I don't get this. If you are going to remove all the snow looking for rock placements, why not do it in summer?
