It was great seeing the film at the premiere, there being a neat symmetry between the inherent madness of sea cliff climbing (especially the looser, more poorly protected stuff) and Mike's project to document and film it almost single-handedly. Glorious madness, mind you.

Nice to see GvG getting name-checked along with Doyle for their film-making prowess too. West Coast Gimps and The Gritual are classics.

Lovely interview. Many thanks indeed. (And many thanks for 'the filim', as folk used to say in Ireland.)

> There are loads of climbing films out there, from phone to helicopter footage. What do you think makes a good climbing film?

> I think it comes down to just two things - do you think the climber's going to succeed and do you care if they do or not?

Totally agree. Sometimes you're willing them on, so, so much - as if that can somehow make a difference!  The grade doesn't matter. Nothing really matters but wanting them to succeed.

Life enhancing, I guess...
