That was a great video Ryan. I guess a GoPro might be too heavy for the remote heli I fly around my living room !

Andy's right about whatever make you feel part of an image or motion presentation. So how do you make these remote control things quiet ?

That's the challenge Jim, for now it's just best to climb routes you have wired as it would be tough to be trying to onsight or send something with that thing whirring near u. Maybe I'll try & get a photo of the setup next time.

You are wrong Relic- on both. Nobody knows this one? No sport climbers on here eh? Hint- The route he's on even has a few jams & is 10d. Lakeside park by blueberry?

That thing is so cool. Amazing potential... Imagine the pans you could do.

Thanks for that Jeff and Ryan!!

No clue as to the route, but the park in my pic has been recently reno'd if that helps..

How annoying is the heli-cam to have around? Can you hear it buzzing? Do you ask the climbers in advance that yer gonna be filming?

Just curious.

Frankly I find the heli-cam interesting but intrusive.

The photo potential is fantastic but......


Has anyone tried hooking up a squirt gun to it?

Don't need a squirt gun today.

Probably wouldn't bust out the chopper at a busy crag since it does make some noise. Not quite lawn mower loud, but somewhere between an electric toothbrush & a blender filled with mashed potatoes. I think he's gonna have some great success with it in the ski/snowboard department.

The route is at chek & is the first line that was climbed on the wall & still one of the best. I'm sure at least BK has done it??!

Nothing that a carefully aimed rock or carabiner wouldn't fix. Maybe try the thing out on some boulderers first? Some of them seem to enjoy a circus like atmosphere. Better still, get some lessons on kite photography from Chaz, and do that.

Does the now over-written Gom Jabbar qualify? Not that I clipped many of the bolts, but I've done lots of the Chek climbs probably including Bullet the Blue Car.

It was amusing to be up there this year and see the bolts sinking into the moss on Boot to the Head. I guess we'll all land in the recycle bin one day.

Dru I was thinking the same thing but I guess clearcut is considered to be on conroy's castle

I won't say that the Forgotten Wall saw a lot of activity in the 90s but Guy Edwards amongst others did try what is now "From Beneath You It Devours" on marginal gear several times. I remember belaying Guy on one of his attempts and his only piece was a blue Camalot about halfway up. It was pretty interesting watching him try to boulder out the crux moves and then downclimb 5m until he could safely fall off...
