Topic - Bantham Hand - Sea Stack Esoterica and Simu-Abseil Video

BALD EAGLE - on 06 Apr 2014
Good afternoon All

During the recent good weather in mid-March, my partners in crime and I managed a smash and grab raid of the esoteric, but photogenic sea stack called the "Bantham Hand" in Bigbury Bay, near Plymouth in South Devon. Undeniably you would class this as "esoterica" with the obligatory guano, friable rock and a wee bit of vegetation but it is a most excellent adventure and the quality of climbing is pretty good too! And as an added bonus to descend from the stack, you can indulge yourself with your partner of choice in the dark arts of a simultaneous abseil. Just make sure your mate has not had all the pies the night before...

Anyway the entertainment was duly recorded so for anyone interested in viewing a short HD film of this splendid "adventure" climb then please use the following link:
If you wish to sample the full High Def experience and your computer has enough va va voom, you should be able to change the "Quality" icon to at least 720p HD in the bottom right hand corner on the You Tube screen.
All constructive feedback or comments welcome and hopefully it will inspire a few folks to climb the Bantham Hand (before it falls down) and visit this beautiful part of the UK! :-)

Cheers and happy climbing!
