Saturday Video: Red River Gorge Climbing: The Zoo

This week's Friday night video has been published on Saturday due to 'technical problems'!

However, here it is. This short clip from Colin Delehanty shows off the superb climbing in the Red River Gorge, USA.

From Colin's Vimeo Page:

Here is Wolverine Publishing's description of the crag in this video.

"The Zoo is a small crag that offers decent moderate sport lines. Not as popular as nearby Roadside and Torrent Falls, it is a good place to get away from the crowds. If anything make a trip to The Zoo to climb Hippocrite. It's a short and powerful line that ascends a steep face via long moves between huecos. Its newer neighbor, Scar Tissue, also offers steep climbing but on fragile rock."

Good bit of High quality film with decent camera angles. The only thing I would say is that despite what you think it doesn’t look good constantly adjusting the cameras focus, it looks amateur and detracts from the films topic! It’s okay to do it occasionally I.E. as a transaction between scenes but when you do it during the events and scenes within the film it makes it hard to watch and irritates the viewer. Jack

Really nice bit of footage...slightly quick scene transitions between then nature shots, but I enjoyed the tilt-shift thing. Better than most generic yeah dude shouty american stuff.

Enjoyed the film. Nice to see people doing things a little differently and executing things with a bit of artistic flare. The tint on the footage works at times but I would prefer it without, I also feel that at some points the edit could have been more simple. It reminds me a little of Renan Ozturk's recent stuff. He also goes a bit over-board with the editting tricks but you both have a clean and solid style. Good stuff and I say again its always good to see something that stands out from the rest of the 'reasonable' (slightly dull) climbing sequences that are popping up at the moment.

I'd have to agree with everyone above - nicely shot, but the editing and constant focus adjustment was quite off-putting. Not enough actual climbing was shown. It was like the photographer had just got a new camera and wanted to show off its capabilities. Looks like a really nice spot though. :)
