FRI NIGHT VID: High Season - A Gritstone Bouldering Film

Our Friday Night Video this week takes us on a tour of Yorkshire's finest gritstone bouldering. High Season was filmed between October and May and includes Oliver Parkinson on some established classics, esoteric gems and a few first ascents. The video is beautifully self-filmed and interspersed with atmospheric shots of crags and moorland.

Some fabulous crags there, but as far as the video went......ranks low in the Friday night list!

I thought this was great. A non-commercial, enthusiast produced film. The filming standard is excellent and some of the lines are really inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

Great shots and great editing - the music isn’t my cup of tea, but then one can’t have everything! Good work.
