Well that was rather good - not maudlin, just good photography and a thoughtful view of what matters.
Thought that was brilliant. Must have been through a lot of darkness after the accident, and it would have been very tempting to make a film about that, but to make one with such a positive message feels like a much greater accomplishment. A welcome reminder not to get too confident, too. Also, really liked the animations.
Hey Dom, I really enjoyed watching this slightly dark, well told story. A story thats easy to relate to but told in a very captivating way. Nice work.
Watched it right through. A lot of it rings close to home & true. The destination is not as important as the quality of the journey. Nice one.
Rather brilliant. Beautifully filmed. The audio podcast about the conversation with Ian is an hour long and can be listened to here - https://soundcloud.com/dombush/land-and-sky-no1-ian-almond
Really rather good.
Climbing is a game of chance ,and we try to judge the odds. Sometimes we get it wrong.
Indeed,as we get older,our friends become more important than the climb.
Brilliant story and film, thanks for sharing. Where is it filmed out of interest? Jaw dropping scenery
That was fab.
The route is Dragon at Carnmore in Northwest Scotland.
And they were in An Teallach too.

No, it's Fionn Buttress, pitch through the overlap and the following one traversing right around the buttresss.
Definitely have to get on that soon. Rock looks incredible.

That was excellent. Well shot, lovely scenery and great insightful thoughts. Animation really good too. Inspiring stuff.
In reply to UKC News:
Really nice to hear you enjoyed the film, thanks for the kind feedback. We’re very proud of it.
The mountain is indeed An Teallach and the route is Fionn Buttress on Carnmore Crag, both in Torridon. Get yourselves there if you haven’t been!
I wrote a blog for Alpkit on the trip we took up to make the film of you are keen to read more and see more pictures. It’s split in to two parts on the Daring Deeds section of the AK website, part 1 is here - https://www.alpkit.com/deeds/talking-torridon-tales
Thanks again and all the best

Ha, about as close to being accurate as saying 'Malham and Kilnsey, both in the Peak District'.
Really enjoyed the film, by the way.
