Great little film, looks very sparse indeed - well done sir. Looks as if chalk might be better than slapping your jeans too.

No, it's excellent footage with music you don't like. I don't get the point of people making comments like yours

Loved the hopeful right hand before the final move.

In reply to UKC News: Only just noticed but am I right in saying this is the same bit as the picture in the UKC banner at the top of the website? Comparing the video screenshot and the UKC banner photo
Tyler - on 05 Apr 2013
In reply to Morgan P:

Yes, I think the person in the banner is on the Promise
In reply to Tyler: The banner is Ben Bransby (HERO) on The Promise, about 2 metres to the right of where he is n the video.

Actually it could well be time for a banner change. I'll get on to it.

I agree, Ben's video and choice of music is excellent but May's caving video is better still with even more appropriate music. Well done team Bransby.

In reply to UKC News: Obviously the technical aspect of this climb is incredible, but its just not a 'stand-out' line! Great effort all the same! I wouldn't show this to inspire a friend who was new to climbing but as a climber can appreciate it!
