Used continous shooting mode to finally nail one of his falls. He made it to the top in the end though.

And i thought Eston Nab was bizarre overlooking Teesside...

Dave, you need to go to Specsavers!

HVS 5a? Surely not.

very nice photo! the red rope in the background is a little distracting though

No, it's not HVS 5a. When you click on the link of the route, it takes you to another route and in turn, that database is out-of-date. Calvin is climbing Moon Night's Snake at F6c. Bolted, not trad.

Great, great shot!

He hasn't fallen off, he's just doing a REALLY thin move.

Yes, so thin that it looks like levitation!

Wow Kin that's an ace shot. Didn't know there were places to climb around Hong Kong.

Fair few places to climb in HK. It's rated in an article recently as the second best rock climbing destination in Asia after Krabi in Thailand. It's probably because of the accessibility of the crags by public transport, stable weather in the winter months, the variety of crags (mountain/sea cliffs/bouldering) in some amazing settings.

Still looks like he's still emulating the moves while falling!
