Stuck at work? Want to get psyched for the weekend? Here's a short film of Greg Boswell and Will Sim climbing the second ascent of The Gathering, (VIII,9), Coire an Lochain, Cairngorms.
The film was this project was a 50/50 collaboration between Justin Tracey of Reeltime Adventure and Jenny Crook - thanks for sending it in Jenny! And great work on the film Justin!
In reply to UKC News: Hi it has not been made clear in this Video posting that this project was a 50/50 Video collaboration between Justin Tracey of Reeltime Adventure and Jenny. I am hoping that UK Climbing will be rectifying this error ASAP.
In reply to Jack Geldard - UKC Chief Editor: remarkeable film for a 90s winter man.. fascinating stuff.. young Sim deserves more attention, very talented, can see why now why hes pasting all the cham test pieces
for all aspiring winter climbers, its all about the feet (as it has always been)
In reply to Jack Geldard - UKC Chief Editor:
Thanks Jack ...a brilliant on fire performance from Greg and Will...just getting on with it. Well done Jenny and of course especially Justin for getting into the right place at the right time and doing the right thing.
More to follow from our team.
