/ VIDEO: La Cène du (Roi) Lézard, 9b, by Pirmin Bertle
Let me save you the trouble,
The actual climbing starts about half way through this video after a rather badly lit and not very interesting piece to camera, followed by the most incredibly annoying editing style that repeats every move four/five/six times from differnt camera angles in chunks of two or three seconds. I lasted about a minute of this before binning it.
This may be the best route in the world but nothing would possess me to watch this film to find out! 1/10
Hmmm, I thought that apart from the rather pretentious first half the climbing footage was superb - especially the all points off dyno. I quite like the different angles. I was disappointed there was only the distant view of the very last section, though...
from 4min10s I'd give it 8/10.
Lo-fi, but in a good way, a bit jumpy, but edited well to a decent dance track. Thanks for sharing it.
Yep. Incredibly annoying. I lasted a bit longer in the hope that they would stop but they didn't.

I really hate that kind of stuff, so watched it expecting the worst. Actually I thought the editing was fine - just briefly overlapping shots from different angles. A perfectly acceptable film.
Lots of negativity on here. Looks a stunning line on beautiful rock in an amazing location. Climbing looks impressive. Well done that man.
Definitely a bit lo fi but even so nice guy, okay chat, stunning location, beautiful route, clear info about how tough it is, nice tune with a theme that fits perfectly with the subject matter. As for the multi-angle repeats of the same move, that worked fine for me.
I did skip the intro chat, but found the rest of it really enjoyable. I've no idea who the music is by but it sounds like it could be a Madonna b- side, and I quite like it, but don't really think its dance music as such, more chill out genre, but fits quite well, has a nice rhythm to match the climbing. I like the film editing too, and the slow mo bits and repeats add value especially as they are from different angles, in fact that really makes it better as you see how steep many of these amazing hard routes are, and then seeing the snow line and realizing it must be quite high up a mountain you realise it's possibly a bit of a mission getting there too , ( but it could be ski lifts ! ). Panning out into the snowy valley was a nice way to end it.
Thanks for the full music video link, weird, seems v reminiscent of being / like they are all k holed!
