The Brits are definitely brave, that’s for sure. This edit starts with some terrifying falls—some of them ground falls—but then moves on to beautiful, bold climbing on some famous Peak District testpieces.

Writes Jim Pope, who stars in and made the video: “3 years of footage compiled together, nothing shiny, but it definitely means a lot to me and the people involved.”

Also: Pope’s save on Appointment With Death (E9 6c), at the very end of the film, around 44 minutes, is outrageous.
