I ran into Dave Friedman at Mickey's Beach years ago and told him how much I liked West Coast Pimp and how it was a shame that it wasn't more widely distributed - let alone that it was released on VHS and knott DVD. He said that Tim Steele (the director) had the master and that he could probably encode it to DVD. I think there might be an issue with music rights on the video as it had the theme song from Grease during the closing credits. I believe Mick Ryan was involved in some manner, perhaps he could be of help (perhaps in securing a VHS copy).

West Coast Pimp is one of my all-time favorite climbing videos, and I would love to have it in something better than VHS quality.

No more VHS copies around that I know of. I'm pretty sure Mick doesn't have anymore.

I have since created a handful of DVD's from the original master. I'd be happy to send you a copy for the price of postage.

No issues with the music used in the video. We pirated lots! Since we donated all proceeds we were prepared to use our non profit status on any zealous record company who screamed foul. Still haven't heard a word!

Hell yeah WCP is tied for my favorite video ever with Masters of Stone 4!
Growing up as a central cali boulderer this video was a hallmark of style.
Just showed it to some newer climbers the way it used to be done.
Steve, I would also love a DVD version, just let me know where to send the dollarz! I'm in Reno but pass through auburn every so often.

No issues with the music used in the video.

Strangest thing... one day while watching it the sound went out. The video plays just fine, but silently... on every system.

Great video.

You should resurrect that thing ans start selling on DVD and donate all proceeds to support a Buttermilks pooper and/or trail building/clean up!

Can someone recommend some freeware for DVD copying on a Mac?

I've gotten so many inquiries about this and don't want to leave anyone hanging any longer. Once I have copies I'll post up here for anyone who wants a copy.

Thanks,

Awesome Steve!

Another option is to upload it as a torrent... save yourself the trouble of inserting all those DVD's... save on shipping... etc. The more people download it (and seed) the faster it will dload for everyone.

A lower res version might also work well on dropbox?
