/ My first video (bouldering at Lynmouth)
Comments and feedback please :)
Dab at 2:30!
Great edit. Some fun looking problems, and the video was spot on, some closer shots would have improved the feel of it though. Oh, and use your feet more ;)

Thought someone might notice that ;)
Thanks for the comment :) For my next video I'll definitely get some closer shots, just about spending time to edit them all together.
My ten pen' 'orth...climbing is all about good footwork and balance...concentrate on that and you won't go far wrong....even/especially on steep stuff.
Cheers dude :-)
I know videos can be deceiving, but that looks like some of the softest grading I've ever seen.
'The Joker and the Thief-7a' would struggle to get 6a at Dumby!
In terms of the video itself...not a bad first effort. Need to work on editing though and improve your clip transitions.
A million times this
That 'extended' slopey traverse 7b?!
However i don't think the climbs looked right for the grade... The 7a and 7b looked a tad easier!
keep it up though!
This whole area has been developed by the Grant Edwards and Mike Cleverdon, among others, and I'm just going by the grades in the online guide, found at http://javu.co.uk/Climbing/Guides/Lynmouth_EastGuide.pdf
The extension to the Slopey Traverse really is 7B; the holds are pretty bad.
And the Joker and the Thief is hard, mainly due to the lack of footholds, though the handholds are not that great either.
