Saw this video: youtube.com/watch?v=7D29kVtNcNY and finally figured out its Martin's Fall 5.6+ at DWG. Nice watching the helmet hero catch the leader's perspective. But its only the 1st pitch. I wish instead it would have been the 2nd pitch; over the bulge above the belay and the airy long traverse left.

I enjoyed this video. The fishbowl effect makes it look severely overhanging even when he has a hands-free stance. The leader in the video might benefit from learning to place nuts.

Placing nuts, and also did it seem like he was slinging more things than he needed to? I don't know the climb, but seems like he could have omitted most of those slings.

Holy crap he's carrying a lot of gear.

I was waiting for him to fall. The fumbling with gear made me he'll at the screen.

It's interesting to watch how someone climbs and places gear. I was surprised by how often the leader fiddled with cams when there seemed to be really solid nut placements nearby. It's hard to judge from a video, but I'd hazard a guess that slotting a nut would have gone more quickly than some of those cam placements, and felt more secure. He didn't reach for passive pro once.
