Underdeveloped - Climbing in IrelandFri Night Vid

© Ricky Bell

This week's Friday Night Video is Ricky Bell's 2007 film UnderDeveloped. Filmed throughout on a set of second hand video cameras, travelling to all the major crags in worn out cars, the film captures not only bold first ascents, rare repeats of modern classics but also the humour and banter that is intricate with the climbing scene in Ireland.

The film follows the climbers as they explore the high granite tors of the Mournes, climb the splitter cracks in the Burren and develop the bold tall faces away from the impressive columns of Fair Head. The light hearted attitude and enjoyment for the sport is apparent throughout.

I'd forgotten just how brilliant this is. I even like the music (well, most of it.... ). But a bit scary that its 13 years old!
