What a legend!
A fascinating video, he came over as a climber who just loved climbing rather than someone wanting to make a living out of the sport and needing to play the brand messages.
He obviously seemed very keen on his Lake District soloing project, but I wonder if he fancies going back to Madagascar for Tough Enough? Having been around a little bit, the climbs "there" strike me as some of the best in the world, certainly for Lake style climbers who like their vertical crimping... I remember being on one route a 1000 feet up on a perfect 50M 7a pitch being a little scared but telling myself this is simply as good as it gets...
I'd love to see this! hopefully it'll be soon!
Any idea where the video is shot (Spain somewhere I assume)...I rather fancy sitting by a stream under a rock at the moment!
It's Chulilla, featured on the homepage at the moment.
