I would guess by the lack of Lycra it is from the early 90's.

Yeah, old Trailside video. They used to have a website, I seem to recall, where you could buy the videos. I think I have a few of them. Was a PBS series.

Host is John Viehman, editor (at the time, methinks) of Backpacker Magazine.

Anyone know who the climber is?

Funny, they're bouldering, and John says, "lets go do some real climbing".

It might not have been the best set up but I'm sure it was adequate.

Kind of amusing. I definitely liked the bit about 'getting the slack out of the system'. Anchor was adequate.....I wouldn't necessarily set one up that way, but at least he had in 3 good pieces and it was sort of equalised (probably simply because all the cams were so close to each other).

This video is fun to watch. Notice how the climber shows his lack of fear on top of the cliff when looking for an anchor. He's the type that wears his rock shoes all the time, ha ha. I'd like to see more of it.

Nope. Greg Lowe. I might have the dates slightly wrong, but, I think Lowe applied for his patent in 1973, and was granted in 1975.

L.A.S. cam. The first. Was using them in the late 60s and early seventies. First ascent of Supercrack (Luxery Liner) in Indian Creek used one in 1976. If you look closely in one of Stewart Green's photo's of the climb, you can see one hanging off Webster.

If you're talking about the climbing episode that I think you are, it was shot in Joshua Tree c.1992--first season of my first public television series (via APT, not PBS), "Trailside: Make Your Own Adventure," first of a new genre of quasi-reality shows now so common. The climber was Paul Borne, but I've heard that he's since changed his name. Obviously, I was pretty much a novice climber, and I cringe at some of the dialogue and rigging but, hey, we didn't have a road map to making a national outdoor series at the time, so stuff like that was part of the package. And my fumbling and bumbling my way through things was the point of the series, after all... to inspire everyday people to get off the couch and get Out There.
We shot quite a few other climbing episodes for "Trailside" as well as my second public television series (on PBS), "Anyplace Wild." Hundreds of shows in all.
At the time of both television series, I was on staff at BACKPACKER magazine, first as Executive Editor and ultimately Publishing Director.
It was a great ride....
