/ most beautiful trad sequence you've ever watched?
Got me thinking, what are the most beautiful sequences you've seen on video?
(link please :) )
The other one that comes to mind is the crux of Silverback, Dumbarton.
Dunno who the climber is. But perfect move and perfect arc for that piece of rock. Maybe it's an artistic thing...
Yes the Braille Trail is a great part from Stone Monkey, where he says something about using your momentum from one move to the next because you can't hold one position statically.
I'm fairly sure climbers can now climb the route statically, and I get the impression some of his flamboyant moves are now considered unnecessary. (like the crucifix move on the Quarryman). Having said this, Dawes' moves make much better vieweing!
Dawes on that V groove on Quarryman is still one of the greatest trad sequences ever shot.
Sounds good, I'd love to watch that. I don't know anyone who didn't find the rasp a massive struggle.

Not trad though!
