13minutes in real time here, negociating Dolt Tower:

Interesting comments on Youtube... There is a secion immediately after Dolt where Jim has to descend / swing across 20/30ft on a tight rope. Brad wasn't at a belay at this point, he just locked his jams and held on tight! I this is true its quite a feat!

"Awesome footage! At 8:31 when Jim yells "take" and swings over, Brad is literally just holding him up with the rope with jams and no pro. Crazy!?"

"Yeah I did the nose earlier this year and normally the follower does a lower out off of Dolt tower. I met Brad a few weeks after the climb and he mentioned that he just holds on tight and Jim swings over on his body weight. I think it lets them go even lighter/faster and not carry any big cams with them.?"

To put it in perspective that's the equivalent of doing ALL of dream of white horses in 22 minutes, 6 and a bit times in a row!
