This week's Friday nighter is a double bill. Both on Gritstone, both bold routes, and both really nice videos.

First up it is Andi Turner, filmed by David H on Clippity Clop (E7 6c) at Ramshaw. A really nice little video with a great vibe, good effort to Andi on the route too!

From the vimeo page:

"Andi climbs/rides(!) Clippety Clop, the classic Ramshaw arete, with a nice bit of background on the route. Originally done for a Boreal talk in Hathersage."

Second is Nathan Lee on his E9 Unknown Stones at Wimberry. The video is by Guy Van Greuning, keep an eye on Guy's vimeo page, he has been putting together some really excellent videos - awesome work!

From the vimeo page:

"Nathan Lee on the first ascent of Unknown Stones E9 6c at Wimberry.

I wasn't there on the nervy day so the climbing footage is kindly taken from Steve Ramsden and Neil Furniss.

It also appears some of the tech grades are low in the montage, this isn't a grand statement about inflation, I just f*%@ed up.
