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.

Jesus every time someone posts a video half of the comments are about the music. We get it guys, not everyone has the same taste in music...
