   I'm trying to find a documentary film about Scott Burke and a group of his friends climbing in Yosemite, el capitan, I think it was filmed by Scott's dad... in the film they spent the night on the wall , played guitar, slack-rope jumped , etc., etc., been looking for it for years , saw it once , can't find it anywhere , if anyone knows the title of the film I would be eternally thankfull ... yours GD.

PS : - it wasn't a documentary about techniques or equipment it was more of a philosophical docu about the spirit of climbing .

post this in supertopo.com and you will get more response.

First time I ran in to Scott in late 90s in yosemite,he introduced himself as the strongest el cap climber in north America and i told him that was his lucky day cause he met the weakest climber in yosemite,


edit, there is film of him in youtube jugging the rope to rescue a drunk on el cap.

I knew Scott a little bit back in the 90's. Lot's of controversy surrounding him and his El Cap exploits. Unfortunately most of the real truth wasn't good.
