Video - Derek & Rick on North East spur of Y Garn , 30th Dec 2010

Inspired by some of the climbing videos I've been watching on tinternet, I thought I'd have a go at recording a day out myself. Its maybe not quite got the drama of leo Holding on El Cap, or the grunting of Chris Sharma, but Derek does do a little muttering to himself...and some steady climbing in adverse conditions. ( it also features some goats!)


If you watch carefully you can see Dereks , quite understandable, reaction to seeing the camera in my hand ( where the rope should be) every time he looks up.

Nice one Rick. Looks good.  Not sure whether Derek was the best looking mountain goat or not.  Certainly chomped his lunch in a goat-like fashion - you caught that well!  Gary

Top day as usual we made the best of it, not bad filming shame about the cast.

It does give a good indecation of how much snow is left and what routes could be in condition when the colder temps return. 

Thanks Derek
