Dan DaltonAn awesome!!!!

Voted 5/5

DVD! I highly recomend it. Awesome climbers climbing some of the greatest rock in the world. I really like The Tombstone (although not a hugh fan of Potter) as well as the Cobra Crack. Really well done, as is to be expected by Peter Mortimer.

Voted 5/5

Liked most of it except for the bunch of adolescent, rich little brats climbing it up in SE Asia (deep water solo) thanks to mommy & daddy's $$$.
Maybe I'm just jealous...
