Great to see video covering the time between red points as well as beautiful climbing footage - a little essay on motivation

Wow! Just loved this little gem! Beautifully filmed (with great use of slow/fast footage) and great sound-tracking.

Lena's eyes as she sticks 'the move' are priceless.

Very inspiring, on many levels.

This is a really good little vid.

Being constructively critical, the length of the subtitles spoiled it a little bit for me as they were just too long. It would have been better if they had been put up in smaller chunks. As they were, they covered quite a bit of the screen and left me concentrating more on trying to read them than watch the footage at times. If it was post-processed by ukc to add these, then it could be done better next time.
I did enjoy it though.

As a practical point, the video is by Scarpa and UKC are just linking to it; I don't think UKC had anything to do with the subtitling.

I just wondered if ukc had done the uk version. Doesn't matter anyway.

I was curious enough to turn on the subs, and you're right. Way to big blocks of text. I don't know if this is due to youtube's software for captions or not.

Anyway, hard to complain since it's free, and I imagine that the subs make this video a lot more enjoyable for many who wouldn't otherwise see it.

I often watch these videos with my children, luckily not this one. How about some warning of ridiculously unnecessary swearing.
