In reply to UKC News: This video would be much better if there wasn't about a million different repeats of each move from 5 different camera angles!

(Awesome climbing though) Good effort!

Agreed about the quick switching between angles, a few less angles and a little longer on each shot I think. Especially as the sountrack is this lovely little happy-go-lucky jaunt. Aside from the switching of camera angles I really liked it. Tells a nice story and brought a smile to my face.

I really liked that. Nice bit of climbing and good to know that I'm not the only person who has turned up, griped about the grading and then realised I was on the wrong climb!

What a disappointing video. The editing through the first half was terrible. Plus i was kind of hoping he was going to top out.

Fun and worth putting up. That said, and to continue banging my drum: how come this is reported whereas homegrown 8B first ascents (on actual rock) don't get a mention? Whilst I'm very interested in the world scene this is UKClimbing, is it not?

In reply to UKC News: he didnt even finish with two hands

In reply to UKC News: Really enjoyed that and the idea of green climbing. I agree about two hands and 3 second count for the full tick! Also someone should tell this guy he needs to keep his arms straighter! Is this the future of British trad climing!?

In reply to UKC News: Standard Pexhill 5a traverse.
