FRI NIGHT VID: The Seaside - Climbing on Britain's Coastal Cliffs

Our Friday Night Video this week is a feature length film from Mike Cheque, who spent three years documenting climbing on Britain's sea cliffs. It features a plethora of climbing talent and a huge range of abilities challenging themselves up and down the coastline. The Seaside captures the climbers who are drawn to these challenges, onsight on the routes they would have been climbing even if the camera wasn't on them, right across the English and Welsh coast. Near misses, deck outs and heart in mouth moments - don't forget your prusiks.

A really good, inspirational video, with none of the "to be expected" egotistical claptrap and look at me posing in videos these days. I'm interested to see that young Mr Fiend climbs such dangerous, crumbly stuff with...
Cheers Des. ****ing Burgess, Lawrence, The Seaside and Rosemergy Towers (and its ba****d sandbags sometimes leaving 4 letter counterpoint to the coastal soundscape) all in one thread. A tin version of Hofstadter ;-).
Brilliant work Mike Cheque, and by everyone involved.  A dedicated piece of work secured by thoughtful insight. Great sea cliff routes all round and especially good to watch Earthly Powers being climbed so well.  This...
