We've got a fantastic new series on UKClimbing.com from Nick Brown of Outcrop Films. Nick has been following some of the top UK climbers and has captured some fantastic ascents on camera, including Dan Varian's awesome Bowden boulder problem; The Rail.
Here Nick Brown introduces his series:
"The Stone Kingdom Series is a homage to not only the climbers who are developing areas, developing new climbs, rediscovering old classics in fine style; but to the beautiful landscapes that they're situated in.
From the shining white sea cliffs of North Wales, the open moors of the Peak District and Yorkshire, to the colourful mountains of the Lake District and the barren openness of the Scottish highlands. Follow climbers through these incredible backdrops as they travel to the less trodden areas, neglected by climbers who focus only on areas of convenience."
With climbers like Dan Varian, Ned Feehally and Shauna Coxsey, this is going to be one of the best sets of videos on UKC for a long time - don't miss them.
