Superb. The photography is a tour de force in such difficult conditions.

Yes, the music was very poor, I thought.

Amazing filming in such difficult conditions. There seemed to be some filming trickery going on, at some points the climbing was being shot from above. I imagine they must have re-lead a pitch or two for the purpose of the video. I didn't know that Adidas made portaledges and goretex! Iv always associate them with school football teams and chavs! I suppose they must have more money to fund expeditions like that than other outdoor brands. Can only be a good thing

Superb and the vid is of such high quality - way better than your normal YouTube stuff. Great climbers (-30C!!!) and great photography - epic. Chris
