Really well done, loving the two parties of two for stuff like that. Looks like a shady day route ?

Super cool. Nice vibe, great tight and thoughtful editing. Thanks for the work you put into that thing. The opening scenes were slick and gave a great story. I use the Nikon D7000 for my projects. That rig of yours will treat you right for a long time.

The only thing better would be ten straight minutes of shaky helmet cam footage pointing directly at the rock in front of the climber.

I love the vid as a trip report. Might not be necessary in the beta section of this climb though.

micronut,

10 minutes of shaky helmet cam footage would have made this immensely better. I'll certainly do that in the future.

j-tree,

I just removed it from the beta section. I had put it there before someone else suggested putting it in the trip report section.
