This week's Friday Nighter is a quick edit of a film in the making, due for release later in the year.
Back at the end of January, Greg Boswell made the second ascent of Don't Die of Ignorance on The Comb on Ben Nevis. This short film by James Dunn is a quick edit of some of the footage.

On www.scottishwinter.com, Greg comments:
"I had a go at the on sight on Friday with Jen Olson [a visiting US climber on the Winter Meet], but I dropped a tool mid crux," Greg told me. "I then had another go but a small flake ripped after finishing the traverse. James and I went back yesterday and I got it first time with a fairly smooth ascent. The crux traverse was powerful and thin, but the icy wall above the crack was utterly terrifying with a good 10m run out above a dodgy hook. Some of the thinnest climbing I have ever done. A sterling effort for Mr MacLeod to free such an awesome line!"
