Really enjoyed the film! And I almost fell off my chair @27:21:

"Look at that!

Well, it's their idea of a good cheese.

They have no idea of good cheese, if you ask me.

This one even won a prize?

Correct, British Empire, first place.

That's a really strange colour"

Of course, there were many much more memorable climbing moments in the film than just a small light-hearted jab at cheeses! Liked it all.

That sketchy runout is one of the most gripping bits of climbing film I've seen - I nearly jumped out of my seat at the dyno! The footage of the other desperate pitch was brilliant too.

Fantastic film.
