In May this year, Italian all-round climber Jacopo Larcher made the fifth ascent of Dave MacLeod's Rhapsody (E11 7a) E11 7a at Dumbarton Rock, near Glasgow (UKC News Report). Alongside his girlfriend - top Austrian climber Barbara Zangerl - Jacopo spent some time in Scotland fighting off the midges and praying for the rain to stop. 

During their trip, Jacopo and Barbara also slogged up The Cobbler to make a team ascent of the iconic Dalriada (E7 6b) E7 6b. A video of Jacopo climbing Rhapsody has just been released, in which he praises Dave MacLeod's vision for and dedication to the route as its first ascensionist.

Excellent achievement and route, but I found that the music in the video spoiled it for me. It was cheesy and it meant that, unlike the footage of Dave Macleod on the route, I couldn't empathise with what the climber was feeling.

Did you prefer the weird rapping and watching Dave's washing machine go round?

Really like Jacopo and his attitude Note: Unfortunate music that you're best off muting

I liked the film and didn't really notice the music which is unusual for me in a climbing video

get over it, its a video which represents an amazing climbing achievement, music is personal, why be negative about something just for the sake of it, this is a climbing forum not music appreciation
