What we like about this video is Rob's commentary. This is a very British video of a very British route. Although it is over a decade since I climbed R'n'S Special myself, (and thought it was more like E6...) Rob's video brought back memories of 'keyholing' a small nut in to a pocket, and generally being pretty terrified all the way across this scary traverse! Thanks for the video Rob!
And secondly we have an interview with Martin 'Basher' Atkinson about his classic hard route Mecca - The Midlife Crisis (8b+) at Raven Tor. Martin talks about Livesey and Fawcett and how he started climbing and of course about Mecca - one of the most sought after hard sport ticks in the UK. Big thanks go to Alexander Char for this vid.
