/ Mick Fowler on film?
It was in an episode of Cameron McNeish's series "The Edge: One Hundred years of Scottish Mountaineering".
My fondest memory of the series was the re-creation of Bill Murray's epic ascent of Tower Ridge and lasso-ing his way out of Tower Gap!
The great thing I remember most from this moment is that he nuts away the ice, in mid conversation to his second. He's in conversation shouting down the route, and then heads away the ice with his hemet in a split conversational moment. So he goes quiet while he does it, but does it so normally and causually that it totally implies that he's done this a thousand times before. Perhaps even mid-conversation too.
I have actually captured this series from VHS to DVD, it's on 3 disks IIRC
