Nice video. Unconventional, artistic. Climbing in the Lofoten Islands - bouldering and plastics.

Edited
Lolli: Well done. A lot of useful information about the islands.

Flew into Oslo this morning and randomly got a ride from a really nice guy whose mother grew up in lofoten. He mentioned that there has been a real battle over the possibility of oil drilling there...found this article: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-05-10/norway-s-conservatives-look-to-lofoten-for-oil-exploration.html

Here's a video which might provide some flavour of the place. Worth a visit for sure and hope for dry weather.

A phenomenal video giving justice to and honouring the landscape... dreamingly, mythically... TFPU!

Robb - holy sh#t, man! Easily, easily one of the most breathtaking films I've seen. My jaw was slack for the entire watch. Began drooling right around 2:20. What world did you guys stumble onto there?


Just f*#king beautiful. Set the imagination ablaze. Maybe one day. Thank you so much.

Also, great job by whoever the team is at Hidden Valley Productions. Is that you?

Marlow, le Bruce - thanks for watching.

We had 2 weeks there in summer of 2012. Was a bonus to come away with footage AND get some climbing objectives done, as they kind of compete with each other.

Wadi Rum Jordan is in production, so will post up when its done (in about a year!)

Cheers,R

Spectacular !! I even enjoyed listing to the accompanying music and tone of the vocal narration...

Truly, thank you for sharing...

Great film. And Norway looks beautiful. Saw a video of a guy soloing what appeared to be the last peak. Looks a lot like the winds.
