Captures the true essence of climbing. 5 out of 5 stars

More than a documentary about climbing. It actually has a strong message within it. In fact, the movie is built around that message. Its a movie about friends, failure, determination, humbleness,and last but not least CLIMBING!

And yes there is alot of it in this DVD. The scenery in this film is amazing. Mallorca is just beautiful. The arch(Es Pontas) was truly a motivational scene. I like how the movie begins AND ends with the arch. That is why the message of "Never give up" is brought out so well.

I highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys climbing. If anything, its a great motivational film for when you have an off day climbing.

Very light. Good foam. Nice landings.

The long straps on the sides for the lounge chair feature can be a pain sometimes. I usually tuck them inside. The fabric used on the outside seems ok, but I notice some of it wearing away. It hasn't ripped yet which is a good sign.
The Madgic Carpet is actually very useful and fits inside the pad nice and snug.
Its not very flexible and slightly bulky compared to most pads, but its definitly worth it. Just avoid placing it on pointy rocks, because that is the reason why the cover on mine is wearing away(nothing major)
