It's incredible we regularly get films like this for free.

What a brilliant video, and such a good name for the route.

I can somewhat relate to his circumstances but rather than being a young climber at the top of his game putting up a fantastic new route, I'm an out of shape old barsteward who decided to try his first route in over 20 years (Direct Route, Milestone Buttress) to help build some confidence after a particularly challenging time. 

It wouldn't have made a very good video but it felt every bit as good (to me). Fantastic stuff.

Now that was a really good video. Unlike others I've seen recently.

What a beautiful film Robbie. Excellently put together and beautiful to see someone so willing to share and be vulnerable. How wonderful to see two guys support each other. This film stands out from the rest. Thank you for your generosity, pyshe and honesty Robbie!
