Focus - A Bishop Highball ProjectFri Night Vid

© Black Diamond

This week's Friday Night Video takes us to Bishop, California, where Timmy Kang is on a highballing mission. Over the years, Timmy managed to climb five of Bishop's most iconic highballs: Footprints (V9), Ambrosia (V11), Too Big to Flail (V10), This Side of Paradise (V10), and Evilution Direct (V11). But the big challenge for him was to attempt to climb them all in a day.

That video is a perfect example of the need for films to combine interesting footage of action with interesting narrative to keep the watcher engaged.

It just completely fails. It's either him wittering at the camera in a slightly dull way, or footage of him climbing with no reference points, info or anything else to up the interest.

Needs to be re-edited with him talking over the climbing scenes to give some context, and be half as long.
