Great film-- they logged some pretty good flight time without injury--also some really good commentary about the hard core ethics of not bolting, and leading on what nature gives you, or choosing to go elsewhere. A lot of those climbs would be "dumbed down" if the pioneers had had less of an obstinate British attitude. :D

Ever watched Lisa Rands lead hard grit nightmare, End of the Affair (E8)?  So scary looking even though it was "just" a headpoint.

Affair is "gimme E8" whatever that means  it's 12b/c with very minimal gear. i tr'd it and NEVER even consindered going for the lead. the cad at gogarth is E6 6A or so... harder than Western Lady, only OK rock and one bolt in 120'- enough for me
