UKC News, Jun 2011
© Mick Ryan UKC/UKH I picked this up late this afternoon and loved it, especially as the UKC/UKH/Rockfax team are going on a climbing trip to Ariège in the French Pyrenees tomorrow.
Watching well-shot videos of top climbers does inspire me; it's good for the psyche - I want to climb like that and now - but also I often learn something, especially from a master like Steve McClure, and I hope you do.
So thanks Steve and thanks Alastair for this great clip; all we've got to do now is find some soft touch holiday 7a's to throw ourselves at!
About The Video
Alastair Lee of Posing Productions writes: The second in our series of unseen archives from the Posing Productions' footage vault. This clip was shot with a fancy polecam set up at the sport climbing area of Rodellar in Spain. Clip features top UK climber Steve McClure on a couple of routes including the classic 'The Dolphin' (El Delfin) 7c. Amazingly we never found a use for such quality footage: see more at www.posingproductions.com
