Mike Call, founder of the climbing hold and climbing media company Pusher, recently shared this film from the archives. He writes on Vimeo:

20 years ago, I made this while working with friends at a start up climbing company called Pusher. 

I made a paper edit, since no one had access to non-linear editing on home computers. The editor used an Avid and 10 gigs of storage. I would tell her what tape to capture footage from, the time codes, and then we’d trim it. It was 175 an hour. I had to be fast, climbing holds weren’t exactly a gold mine.

Released in 1997 I believe, nearly 20 years old.
Tech specs: Sony Hi8 video, 720×480. 

Yep.
