I'd never seen this before - Chouninard and Doug Collins on W face of the Sentinel

What a great film! Thanks for posting.

Credits say Royal Robbins and Yvon Chouinard. Even better😊

Thanks for finding this. Great film, with an excellent commentary - better English than the English! 

Disappointed not to see the steep off-fist crack pitch in all its glory - for me, one of the most committing and serious pitches I ever climbed. Howard got the expanding flake, fortunately...

In reply to wbo2:  I'm very pleased YouTube selected this for me.. apologies for getting the naming wrong.  I was pretty surprised to see Chouinard on the boulder at the start.  Personally I liked a LOT about this - the climbing, the music, period commentary and the quality of filming.  

The fist crack looked a good lead

I do wonder if 'the algorithm' picked this as I'd recently seen, as well as climbing films, the late 60's film series 'Road Dreams'?

Amazing film for its day. They don't do soundtracks and commentary like that any more!

Thanks for putting it up.
