Scott Patterson, brenta, and I climbed Lone Eagle Peak (located in Indian Peaks Wilderness) via "Solo Flight" Route on September 24, 2005.
Lone Eagle Peak doesn't look like much when you look down on it from the higher summits to the east like Apache, Shoshoni, and Pawnee. In fact, Lone Eagle Peak is mearly the far north end of Iroquois Peak's (Point 12,799) North Ridge. However, when viewed from the north near Crater Lake or Mirror Lake Lone Eagle Peak is certainly one of the most stunning summits in the state.
Very nice. I've found that the hardest part of movie making is getting the right clips. That is...thinking out the movie in advance and thinking of clips and angles which will look good when edited together. That seems to work better than just shooting random clips and trying to make them work together. Anyway, you've seemed to have the knack. The other issue I always have is getting the movies/clips in sync with the music (like you did)......and picking the right music to go with the scenes. Oh well.....it is an evolving process which I enjoy.
Good job. I look forward to more movies (so I can get ideas).
1000Pks - Like Alan said, I have the .mov file hosted on my own server space and I just link to it in the code of the trip report. Movie files are exponentially bigger than photos so I doubt summitpost will ever support them like it does photos.
attm - I shot about 500 megabytes of video footage throughout the day (I have one 256 mb card and two 128 mb cards). This came to about 23 minutes of useable footage. I found that shooting video takes a lot more battery juice than shooting still photos and I ran out of battery before I ran out of storage space.
Really gets me excited about giving Solo Flight a try. Seems like you knew exactly where you were goin on the route. Was the way pretty evident? The climbing and views look spectacular. Thanks for putting together such a great video.
Thanks. We new exactly where we were going until we hit that final ridge. We did a little exploring and tried a couple of things before we found a line that would descend down to the big ledge. After you get down to the ledge then it's a pretty straightforward scramble to the summit. Scott took a really nice photo of the route here. That area is really pretty and the climb is really nice. Someday I want to go back and try the North Face!
