It's not just the Taipan wall lighting - I thought that was pretty good. Access and getting the angles would have been the major concern. I reckon it's the best footage in the movie. It's the fact that the lighting is absolutely terrible in places where it would have been solved by buying a $50 light and a reflection board. The footage of Nowra and Sydney bouldering is awful because of this.

The argument "well it's a better climbing movie than you could make" is ridiculous. You obviously don't have to be able to do any given activity in order to critique someone else doing it. Especially if you're paying for it. Have you ever bought any climbing shoes or rope or whatever that you thought wasn't too great? How good are you at making ropes?

But after all that, I really did enjoy the movie.
