This footage was captured by Mike Volk in 1986. Before the digital revolution this movie was too expensive to edit so the tapes simply collected dust for 20 years before I took on the task of editing it. The purpose was to archive and preserve the early years of climbing at Smith Rock .
During 1986 Smith Rock gained recognition as an international climbing destination.
The event was captured with a single tube betamax camera and an inexpensive microphone. The footage was captured by Mike Volk. I made the intro in After Effects and edited the movie in Final Cut Pro.
