/ VIDEO: James Pearson: Beyond the Mostest
I expected to hate that so much........
But it totally pulled me in. Some tongue in cheek humour, heartfelt reality at the end. And what a beautful route.
I will never stop enjoying seeing climbers taking the piss out of themselves. It's so vital.
One of the best climbing videos I've seen in a while...
Excellent, very insightful words too.
Great looking route and rock!
Climbing starts at 9min

Yep , padding (literally). A waste of 9 minutes (was it really 9 minutes?)
Who cares about the padding,what a bit of climbing at the top
massive run out and goey moves add up to one ballsy boy
Well done that man
Video gives a different impression of James from one I'd had before and I'm not sure I like it so much. Was it really necessary to bring out clichéd American tropes and bash Trump and modern life in a climbing video?
What a route though, no preplaced gear either.
Why not? Its not like theres a shortage of straight up climbing films.
Filmmakers can’t really win. If they appeal to the youth then that’s shit and if they make something funny with social comment then that’s shit too. Thought this was pretty good and the climbing segment was fantastic. Something different from the millisecond attention span, quick cut, logo filled usual and a bit of fun. My thoughts for what they’re worth.
It just went on too long for me though. If the stuff at the start was cut in half I'm sure I'd have enjoyed it more. Great climbing though after the nine minute mark though.
I thought that was brilliant. Maybe the Trump sequence went on a bit (like all Trump sequences) but the climbing afterwards more than made up for it. Awesome looking route and well captured. I quite enjoyed all the piss taking at the start. Round of applause all round.
very good. Similar style to the bronx one he did recently. A bit different with great climbing footage. Good stuff
They should release two versions of the film, one for grumpy old tossers like me who couldn't care less about James' opinions on life but thought the climbing part was flipping ace, and enjoyed watching him climb so smoothly, then one for people who enjoyed the humour bits.
I thought this was good. Apart from the runouts it's pretty bold making a climbing film like this: that's different to others and could easily fall flat on it's face. However I thought it worked really well and it kept me engaged for the whole duration.
but wait, what's this...
ohhh, nice route and good send.
Just simply ludicrously brilliant climbing. Awesomely great. Now I'm off to struggle up 6a routes at West way
Very enjoyable - nice contrast between the beginning and the end made the climbing part even better - added to the fact that Sunset, above Chattanooga, is just a great place.
Lots of reasonably graded routes. Although I'll confess I was completely spanked by a 5.6 (I think - my memory has been edited to avoid too much embarrassment) and a fabulous location.
