Xtreme Scenario: A study on the aesthetics of the technical equipment used in climbing. Gear geeks be warned: these videos might get you hot under the harness.

This is not a negative comment, but I was amused that my first reaction to the first photo was to mentally tick off all the hazards going on (krab on krab, rope running around screw gate, three-way load... and the presence of the planet Mars in the background, which clearly shows that they're all  being used in space)

I'm sure it's all very impressive to some computer generated geek, and probably took a lot of effort, but nothing in those clips looked even approaching real to me.

The movement just doesn't look real. The way the ropes bend the text on the labels stretches and wallows.

And you used that time saved to leave a comment telling everyone you didn't watch the video.  Thanks.

Nice to see something that's not Dave Mac Videos or Colin Prior images on UKC, as much as I do like both those things.
