Our Friday Night Vido this week follows the climbing of Mickey Schaefer, put together from ten years of archive footage from Mickey's climbs. These days, Mickey is known as 'the guy who can't watch' from Free Solo, but his climbing career extends further than a starring role in an Oscar winning film. He is known in particular for his first ascents in Patagonia and Yosemite and this film delves into just a few of them.
In my opinion, this is the best Friday night video I have ever seen. Something about the tone of MS's voice, the slightly ad hoc editing, the persistence of 10 years in Patagonia, the persistence of (bad) weather, the views of him and his mates on the granite summits which could have been boulder tops. Chapeau.
