/ The Best Climbing Video Ever
What is yours?
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 .
Really great !
That's funny I was going to give the same reply to your 'World's top 10 routes' earlier today! ;)
I like that jokey one with the Swiss girl but have forgotten her name.
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.
There's boring and there's f@@king boring !
The second one is better, some great falls but too much screeching
Stone Monkey, Hard Grit and Set in Stone do it for me
I'm not too keen on the climbing, it gets in the way of the main subject....
That's it. Thanks!
There's not even any climbing in it?
What... No one's posted that Dan Osman Speed Climb video yet? Shame on you, UKC.

Yes they did
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 :(
check it out, 5 pages of movies from all over the world:
> 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.
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 looks fabulous. Is the longer version available?
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?
Apologies Jon... Available from here http://www.mountaineering.ie/shop/viewdetails.asp?catID=2&ID=33 and also here http://www.hillerscapes.co.uk/underdeveloped.htm
Of fails, this is a goodun'
hehe he is so baked in that vid.
