Sharp End - Climbing Video Teaser + Freebase Climbing

Postby Tama on Fri 22/May/09 12:18pm

I'm just searching for some footage for HDC and came across this teaser. I saw some of the "Sharp Edge" at the Banf Film Festival and it was bloody good. Must try to get the whole movie.

Oh yeah - here we go: Dean Potter free soloing the Eiger with only a base chute as protection. I'm pretty sure this is from "The Sharp End"



Check out 1:59 onwards :exclaim:

You'd better be wearing your hobnails next time I see you climbing.
