We are now in limited release with a full roll out of DVD's and VOD coming in December.
There is also an opportunity for individuals and groups to host screenings.

This version is all new. After the Facelift and Bay Area screenings we listened to the audience and re-edited to tighten things, add some footage and clear up some fuzzy details.

Currently the film is only available on the Steep Edge website and we have gone from New Release last Thursday to Most Requested by Sunday. We also had a nice review on The Outdoor Times (UK) website. It seems Europe has followed this story.

THANKS

RE this:
"You are purchasing this film/these films as a digital download or as an online rental."

This is an old computer without much room on it. How much hard drive space is needed? 10 lbs sterling heh....

Steep edge? They're putting up a movie about the worlds biggest slab?

Is there a thread that details this "controversial" story?

I thought it was worthwhile. Hope Ammon is making some money off this... the subtitle should be "Ammon Climbs WOS". The interview with Gabe is worth the price of the vid.

You two stop it now. :D

Okay, I just downloaded it and watched it. Been following it for 30 years so it was all as expected. What I took away from it was how cool Ron Kauk is (which I already knew) and how great Ammon treats Kait. :)

My special edition of Reservoir Dogs comes in a tiny gas can.

But I hate to think about the packaging design for the special edition of AoEC.

Much ado about nothing.

Well, I don't know.

I got what is apparently the only copy of the book in the world autographed by both Richard Jensen and Mark Smith out of it all.

Bet Steve Grossman's pretty jealous about that...

Looks like a good film. Have downloaded and only perused it thus far, but lots of good interviews and it appears to be a pretty balanced perspective.

Really enjoyed Kauk's conversation about learning something from the event...

Yes, please comment on the downloading techie stuff..

Am in the process of downloading a 2.2 GB mp4 file ... 40 minute download at 870 K/sec.

£10.00 was $16 USD, Paypal.

Saw it recently at the Stanford showing. Great story!!!

edit: the DVD with extras will be even better!

Thanks for that Rudder.

When is the movie coming out in hard copy?

It would be the perfect Christmas gift for two of our friends...

Say Jeff, for those of us who paid into the kickstarter, is there a date by which we might see the hard copy? I'm feeling out of the loop, having not seen this thing yet...
