Hi Dane,

Wow--that old video is impressive. There is one part in the middle where Christophe falls into a steady, fast rhythm, climbing with both tools...it reminds me of Ueli Steck on his recent speed climbs. The more things change, the more they stay the same....

Hi Dane,

Wow! That old video is great. Some of the footage of Christophe when he is moving fast reminds me of the recent videos of Ueli Steck on his speed climbs. The more things change, the more they stay the same....I was also impressed with the other video. Alpine Exposures does a great job. Just a head's up: I posted a comment to the REI pack review--because it's an older post, I thought I would mention it here. I don't know how far back you look. have a great season. Bruno

Bruno,
Fun stuff isn't it? I am really impressed with Jon Griffith's photo work and his and Will's climbing. Strong lads! My favorite blog on the Internet.
