      • BD athletes Adam Pustelnik and Nico Favresse make first repeat of Orbayu (8b+/8c) in Naranjo de Bulnes, Spain

        As we reported in the Black Diamond Equipment Journal this past August (http://www.blackdiamondequipment.com/en-us/journal/climb/all/bd-athletes-adam-pustelnik-and-nico-fabresse-make-first-repeat-of-514-multipitch-in-naranjo-de-bulnes-spain-en-glbl-en-us), Black Diamond athletes Nico Favresse and Adam Pustelnik made the first repeat of Orbayu, a multi-pitch line on Spain's Naranjo de Bulnes, which at 8c+/9a had been hailed as the world's hardest big wall free climb. Although the pair felt the route was not as hard as it was originally trumpeted (they graded it more in the 8b+/8c range), they had nothing but high praise for the route's quality. We had Bernardo Gimenez on the scene to capture their successful redpoint of the route and he has edited together this excellent video. At the end of the video you'll see footage of Adam as he is stabilized, rescued and hospitalized after a terrible ground-fall while attempting a new line with Nico after they had redpointed Orbayu. Adam continues to make progress in his recovery and we look forward to seeing him back cranking on the rock in 2012.

          Note - this was filmed under professional supervision. It is not advised that you try this at home. We recently had a new IDT Y5 HDiablo sent to us as a demo. This is the first of 3 high speed cameras we will be testing this month before we make a decision on which one to purchase. We shot in several different types of situations over a 2 day period and this quick little demo was made for the purpose of including the Y5 in a realistic workflow from concept to final cut. We'll be writing a blog about it later. The two other cameras we will be testing are the Photron BC2 and the Phantom Flex. Music - The Glitch Mob - We can make the world stop. Equipment: Canon 5D, 7D Lots of lenses IDT Y5 Diablo 300mm Zeiss PL 35mm Zeiss super speed Zylight Lightpanels Guns: M-249 SAW M-4 (7" Barrel) HK-53 MG-42 "Hitlers Buzzsaw" G-17 select fire PPSh-41 AR-15 M-16 LIKE us on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/InsightVisualMedia FOLLOW us on twitter @goivm We will have a major blog posting at www.goivm.com about each camera once we've completed evaluations. Special thanks to our friends over at www.coldhandarms.com for letting us film some of their guns. Thanks, also, to Zach Meadows for letting us blow up his son's pony.
