After another alpine start from Edinburgh we got to the Peak thanks to Michael Tweedley. Seen below using the latest in hands free technology known as the ‘smart beanie’.
We filmed the ascent using 3 cameras; I was hanging off the top just to the right of the route, Michael was filming on a large boulder from tripod, he was also operating another camera on a fixed tripod pointing at the belayer. I think the footage we got is some of the best we’ve ever captured, it’s tense, well shot and of course the climbing is nails.
Here are some of the video frames:
When I witness a great piece of climbing like this, it makes all the driving, lugging gear, hanging around in the cold etc all worth while. I really get a great buzz from it.
