Something rather different than usual today. Lately I have been experimenting with the Mobius camera to shoot video during climbing sessions. As with all experiments, some takes have given better results than others. The main difficulty, I quickly found out, was to find a suitable vantage point to place the camera. Something that is entirely dictated by the way the route goes and its general surroundings. The ideal position would be to the side of the route, about mid-way up, and somewhat further out of the rock face. Generally this is in mid-air. Rather impractical, you see. So instead I’m limiting myself to the few routes where there is a decent natural vantage point, and where the route is easy enough.
Anyway, I hope you like this. For my non-climbing friends, family, and readers, here’s hoping this gives you a general idea of what it all involves. Climbers will probably just want to skip ahead; it’s an easy route with no fancy work on my side. Except, perhaps, this may show what the country can be like in the winter, after some morning rain.
