I've been an avid viewer of previous years' IFSC bouldering comps, but have been dismayed at the quality of this year's footage. Poor camera angles, cutting from one competitor to another at shockingly inappropriate moments, not to mention the usual inane commentry. Is there any chance of getting a well-edited version? Is there any chance the commentator, likeable chap as he is, could be replaced by someone who actually understands bouldering, and can add to, rather than detract from, what we are watching?

We listen to our own music while watching the images, the camera work could be better too.
