Abosulutely awsome... From start to finish this DVD rocks. The problems are showcased really well with good filming and camera angles. Problems range from around V7 and up to around V12?. Each area has a good amount of time devoted to it so you get to know the areas a little, the bonus features also return to some areas. There is some excellent FA's achieved and one problem that you see, gets an FA in the bonus features section with somewhat of a time line.

The soundtrack is really good something for everyone in terms of music taste. There is no waxing lyrical in terms of commentary which is good but plenty of grunting and groaning.
If you are really into bouldering this is a must have, by the end you will want to hang off your doorjam.
It will be one you can watch over and over and still enjoy
anyway enough...did I mention it was good?????

This is a great bouldering DVD. It fits a maximum number of problems into its 80 minutes of footage, however i felt that this was almost overkill. The typical history/commentry isn't there and the enormous american egos and muscles are somewhat annoying. Overall though, a very inspiring movie with some great areas and problems.
