That is a classic vid love the simplicity & subtle enthusiasm of it remember watching that & another of Mr Smith on a nails problem many years ago its amazing how such short vids can have such an influence & inspiration .

For me I think my fave has to be of Alex Honnold free soloing Moonlight Buttress it still gets me now .

there is another of a Polish dude free soloing a hard route in Italy somewhere I think , thats quite gripping . ( have it on a hard disk somewhere ) .

And the Dave Birkett slot in Psyche captures what its all about for me .

Not seen that for a while, still gripping, great short.

Best ever...not sure. FWIT, I think climbing films have got a bit to go until production quality is up with the top end ski and boarding vids but I still love Set in Stone.

In reply to Mick Ryan - UKC and UKH:
The second one is better, some great falls but too much screeching

Stone Monkey, Hard Grit and Set in Stone do it for me

Think you must mean this one with Nina Caprez and Cedric Lachat on 'Silbergeier':

FWIW, I thought it was pretty damned good too.

I'm not too keen on the climbing, it gets in the way of the main subject....

Nice one Mick. If you don't get it, you don't get it I guess. It's a great clip and left me with a really good feeling.

Shortly after it came out, a good friend made an excellent spoof version of this called 'Skelf', (Scottish slang for splinter). Identical scenes, style, content and pieces to camera. The problem itself was slightly different of course, but all the funnier for it. Sadly he didn't want it publicly released :(

Verdon Dreaming. This is the best climbing vid ever. Top quality, superbly shot, incredible line and impressive climbing complemented by the perfect track.

The one featuring Catherine Desteville soloing in Mali is pretty good - and not just for the climbing ;-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N70DLM8Az_8

I still like this for the route;

Yes, obsession distilled to its purest form.

Great shout that Steve , not seen that vid for too long , I love the switch from the slow almost introverted dubby muzak to the month laters f*ck it lets do this vibe of the uptempo funky groove , I think its some of the most effecient clipping I've seen too , Sharma almost floats up the route !

I wonder how many repeats its had ?

Set me up for the rest of the day that , right time to go climbing . . .

This is my favourite video at the moment, not sure why. Just fills me with a sense of "proper" climbing. I don't think they're sponsored or anything, they're just doing it because it's fun! Some of the runouts are pretty heart-in-mouth as well.

That's what I meant - the vid was titled Undeveloped Trailer but you made no mention of Undeveloped. So where do I get it from?
