An awesome!!!!
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.

Very good.
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...
