A little video I made showing a couple of the new harder routes at the Gold Mine crag.

Nice - stuff - but how did you switch angles when he was pulling the lip on the 29?

I shot that at a different time. I actually wish I had more 2nd angle stuff but the batteries died, thus my panic "jump jump jump" trying to get Matt to jump off - the camera was about to go dead flat!

1:45 is a long drive for NSW, but nothing if you are a Victorian. It's an amazing cliff and definately worth a visit. Endless stepped overhangs.

Loving all the short flicks you have been releasing lately Neil, keep them up. So much better watching rope climbing them bouldering.

I agree with the comments about seeing vids of roped climbing vs bouldering.
Now all we need is more vids of soloing vs roped climbing ... heh, heh, heh.

Why does your voice in that vid sound like a cartoon character?
Were you wearing your harness too tightly while filming?

And hearing Aussie accents instead of "venga! venga!"

That was a cool flick. I liked the look of the second climb, very cool roofs...

Definitely dodgy belaying - more rope out certainly would have helped, and a bit of a jump, rather than sitting . . .
And seriously who wears gloves belaying these days? And when using a Grigri ? Come on . . .

It looked like there was an attempted jump, perhaps it was a bit early, or perhaps there was a lot of drag over the lips of the previous rooves.

Not sure what, but the catch definitely could have been softer.

The problem with catching this route is you can't see the climber when they are above the lip - and it's very hard to judge when you jump into a catch when someone is coming down and towards you.

What crap! If the guys jumping from there you should have a whole lot of slack out - rope on the ground in front of you sort of thing . . .
And you don't need to be able to see anything to judge when to jump, feel works fine . . . .

What was the knot that he used to tie in?

Bowline - quick-tie method. The straight bit pulled through actually ends up being the bit that goes around the rope in the finished knot

Um i think that Matt weighs around 20kg less than most climbers. The weight difference makes dynamic belaying tricky, especially with a gri gri. Combined with rope drag from the roof its a recipe for being slammed.

Piper is normally a great belayer btw!!!
