Nice photography from Beinn Eighe, shame about the music (or maybe that's just me showing my age)
I agree,dreadful music!
Yep if there is one way to make great climbing look tame just add an overstated "exciting" soundtrack to it.
Agreed. So many climbing videos get ruined by awful music. Looked a great adventure though.
Ha ha! Agreed, funny thing is I'm not sure how Keith even found that music, he's into Bruce Springsteen!! ;-)
Sundance has to be one of the best VIII s anywhere.Safe bonkers climbing on an amazing crag! That 3 pitch sometimes has a big drooling ice dagger coming down it which makes for really cool moves....Nice one lads 3 superb looking day
Good footage once you hit the mute button.
Twenty five yeeaarrs!
