Does anyone else think he looks like a transformer with all that clobber on? I'm guessing the glasses are made by NASA?

I thought it was quite a good video. Interesting how he says he selects the right size of nuts/cams more through feel than visually (unlike most folk).

I know people who use the feel method to place blind wires. Keep forgetting to log mental notes.

Anyone know the name of his warm up routes. Get some in?
