Good film of an amazing route. I couldn't finish it, but had an amazing day playing on the bizarre moves. We avoided that that move out left by using undercuts and wide bridging.

Every time I hear of a rockfall in the quarries, I worry it might be buried forever.

It feels geologically active down there.

The lost world is on a mission to fill itself in! Some of the falls in the past 5 years have been huge. I miss the trees and the bothy

I thought this was a pretty good video as the ratio of climbing to other stuff was high. Lots of videos seem to have 10 minutes of philosophising or some kind of buildup involving the characters starting into the distance or cleaning their shoes in slow motion, and then 2 mins of actual climbing. There was just enough buildup here to set the scene and show us the quarry, and then they got on with the actual climbing.
