This is an awesome video and feels far less 'commercial' then leo's asguard project. Looks like they had more fun as well. Man i wish my climbing club had some people that want to do this kind of thing, i have read every book under the sun about aid and big wall but so far have never found a partner : ( That’s what you get for living in a shit part of the country.
