WORST. CLIMBING. VIDEO. EVER.

Posted on: October 19, 2007


I wanted to like this because I love the Huber brothers. If I could climb 5.14 in leather pants, I would. Actually, if I could climb 5.14, I would do it in leather pants to prove a point. Much like the Hubers. Alex is a physicist, too, just to spice things up. In any event...

Beyond the shaky, jerky, poorly edited video and the insipid soundtrack from the masters of rock-flavored power pop, U2, what really bugs me the most about this, for some reason, the name of the video playlist. "Nose Speed"? Really? Was there no vetting process here?

well. it should be "authenticity" ... another reason to moan in order to miss again the central meaning of the message given by the videoclips ...

well mr. niceguy it was me who recorded and did the video, what's wrong with it ? ah.. the wright spelling would be "authenticiy" .. however the main purpose of these clips: they cover live the speed record and shows thrilling live action to the climbing world combined with music with fits to the climbing speed ... according to the watching-rate, people like it: it has been clicked within 4 days about 25.000 times ... I love captious critics who never prove any better ... Henryx p.s. these clips never go on sale ! so what ... ?

"non-professional equipment caused inferior qualitiy, but the authencity is what counts"

I guess you can't spell-check when you used the scrolling Star Wars feature in your video editing software.

Chip-n-Dales is hiring for some new dancers. They should audition with that soundtrack.
