1. Bit rough and ready, but here's sone video (taken on a Canon G15) from a one and a half day ascent of Zodiac. We began at 5 (jumared a fixed rope on 1st pitch) and stopped 2 pitches from the top on Peanut ledge.

  2. Short film of an ascent of Lurking Fear on El Cap that was meant to take 1 day, but due to weather and a slow party, ended up taking 3! Bivy footage is on pitch 13, were 2 of the team had to sleep on a 40 degree sloping slab all night. Steve (NZ)in blue has an eye condition meaning he only has 10% vision (that's why he has the biggest haul bag to carry, as we told him it was the smallest), while this was Johno's (AU) first big wall (we met him at El Cap bridge the day before, and thought it would be funny to do it with a Brit, Kiwi and Aussie). Other climbers seen in video are Steve Scnieder and Pat (68 years old, and on 6th El Cap route).

    All footage was filmed on Cannon G15 compact camera.
