I thought he was including Nalle etc in what he was saying? "It's raining? Do we care? No."

Early on perhaps, but the monologue at the end seems to be talking about his FA. Unless Nalle also climbed it right afterwards and they didn't mention or show any of that? Upshot is that the end sounds a tad pretentious.

Maybe you think it's pretentious because he uses big words like "fabrication" and "imagination" instead of "rad" and "psyched"?

Just rewatched that section and it still sounds to me more like "we the team" than the royal we. He starts that section with a bunch of I did this stuff before he moves into the we stuff. I would've thought he'd start in we mode if he was using the royal we.

"We" is first person - it's just that rather than talking about yourself, you are talking about yourself as part of a team. Rather than pretentious - he's including the whole crew, seeing it as a group achievement - presumably everyone was working the moves and he was just the one that pulled it together; but on the whole Dave Graham saw it as a group effort.
That was how I understood it

Here's Nalles version:

He's doing the second ascent of Wave Swoop at the end of the video.

Care to go a little more in-depth like Geoffrey Rush and Cate Blanchett did when they reviewed David and Margaret?

You're just pissed that you don't have their job.

Don't worry, when ed slab gives me the next bit part for the upcoming Nati fest, I'll have that job nailed.

Or just someone in a foreign country?

Dave Graham, or were you really not asking a question at all, and just wanted to make fun of an awesome climber who can't speak good and shit?
