The most pure breed of the lot goes straight up the rock face with no means of attachment except chalk on the fingertips.Believe me, if you didn't see this last bunch, you should have. They're evolving. Their fingers are long and sensitive, like those of Vladimir Horowitz or certain species of climbing frog. Crouching in space, with fluttering fingertips they search the smooth rock for irregularities, like a blind man reading Keats. Sensitive toes propel them upwards. 'Oof! Aangh!' they say quietly. 'Harf! Ungh! Hoof!' Clearly they have left the English language far behind. The commentary, alas, was still stuck with it. Every climber was described as the most unique in creation. 'More than anyone else he has extended the frontiers of the sport.' But this was a programme so brilliantly photographed that not even dull talk could make it boring.
I'd also love to see this, particularly Ron on Lord.
Morning!I've got copies of Ron Fawcett - Rock Athlete and The Fingertip Phenomenon; they're VHS rips so the quality's not great, but perfectly watchable.Haven't got access to big enough online storage, but if anyone's in the Matlock area I'll stick 'em on disc for them.Cheers all!Dave
there already is a torrent, just a seedless one.
Would it be possible for anyone to put these on a DVD, or even VHS. I don't have a computer, and only operate on a rather limited android phoneOr at least make them easily available on web, eg you tube.I contacted person who put rock athlete clips on you tube this morning. They don't have access to them anymore.Cheers
