Boreal introduce the episode:
In episode 7 'The Head Game', film maker Nick Brown follows the husband and wife pairing of Jordan and Naomi Buys as they visit some of the more 'esoteric' Gritstone crags near their home in Burnley.
The film opens with Jordan climbing at New Church Quarry as he attempts a committing first ascent of an unusually steep and pumpy E8.
Later we follow Naomi at Hawkcliffe (West Yorkshire) and then on a different route back at New Church quarry. At the time of filming Noami was on a roll. She had recently bagged a string of hard routes and was about to make this her best ever week of Gritstone trad climbing.
