what the hell is up with you douchebag boulderers who use OMGZ DAB!!!!one11!!! to describe every single thing that you don't like?

I'd rather see a video of a weak climber having fun than some more shots of some pro climber crushing something I'll never touch. Sometimes it's nice to just watch people enjoy the sport without the hero worship that gets spouted on all of the uber climber videos.

I understand where you are coming from valarc...but in this case the video is nowhere near the better quality of many of your other videos, Matthew - and I say that as constructive criticism. The filming and editing of the trailer portion is much more "your style" and is a better representation (not sure about the clubby trance music though? always thought that really dated videos - always thought it sounded really cheesy for a climbing video). The climb looks boring at the angles it was shot at and the kicker for me is that the send is literally like 15 seconds long.

Again I understand and can appreciate the normal joes climbing realistic things versus ShArmA sending some v22 but something like this - an apparently very easy flash of a very short problem just seems silly to tape in the first place.

cliffhanger- thx for the constructive criticism. Maybe it will help you guys to understand the specific purpose for all my McAfee vids- I was going to make a full length McAfee Knob "video guide". i filmed 25 climbers on over 40 problems and would sell it with a guide at local stores in Virginia- only marketing that local audience. Many of the problems are not necessarily "entertaining" for everyone to watch but i still wanted the problems for my project as they represent problems of all grades and styles in that particular boulderfield. To make a long story short the film never transpired, but i still wanted to post all the problems so McAfee locals would at least have access to them. In a year from now i hope to have 30-40 of these problems all posted under the McAfee section on RC.

Hey thanx for the comments. To add to the explaination of leedaclimbers McAfee vids we are friends and I decided to get together with him and arrange the music for his vids. All of them. It's a hobby I have and techno is what I specalize in but I try to arrange other styles like rock, indie, and combine the styles with each other so they don't sound like the same style all the time. thanx again---Dale Edmonds---

hey man, I liked the video, i understand it's not like watching Jade get sent, but having climbed a few times up at the Knob I like recognizing the moves and holds and knowing what pain their fingers are in... :) One thing though, where's that dyno in the video? I've never seen or come across it...
