/ FRI NIGHT VID: Great Sail Peak, Baffin Island
Great film. What an incredible looking place.
And what a sad end.
Brilliant vid, thanks.
Brilliant video, nice and calm and understated. Some of those pitches looked amazing, especially that corner with the thin finger tip crack. Still can't really believe Marc's gone though. Been looking forward to returning to El Chalten next year and catching up with the yank/canadian crowd that go there every year, some great friends some of whom I haven't seen since I was there four years ago. Marc was the most genuine and motivated of all, and somehow I forgot that I wouldn't see him there again. I remember him skulking around the boulders on the edge of town, climbing through wind or rain, just happy to be outside when everyone else was sheltering indoors. Or bubbling at Niponino, excited about the route he'd just tried to solo, or the one he was going to solo tomorrow. An adventurer he definitely was, through and through.
