Velcro Low V13
About a week ago, I finally redpointed Velcro Low (V13) in Squamish. This line has a stand up at V9/10 thats been around for a long time. A few years ago, Tim Doyle made the first ascent of the low which starts on two almos nothing holds, and makes hard moves into the stand. This problem took me about 4 days to do. A couple of those days, the top out was unclimbable and on the last day, I brought my video camera to document the ascent. It took me about 10 or so tries this day to do it. One of the hardest part about this problem is the left hand start hold is pretty sharp and you have to grab it really hard. The first couple of days I was on it, my skin would just rip apart and I’d have to stop trying it. Another huge piece of beta you should know if you try this problem is the placement of your left foot to get your heel up next to your hand. You kind of do a reverse toe hook at the bottom of the wall. This makes your left hip press against the wall and if you’re flexible, you can throw your heel up there. This is the 3rd movie I’ve made and I had a really big problem trying to use Premiere Pro from the CS3 edition so again, it’s in Windows Movie Maker. The problem I had with Premiere Pro was that I couldn’t load the video file into the program without having a 4 second gap in the audio. Anyways, I hope you enjoy my movie.

Couldn’t you just upload the video then unlink the audio then scrub it forward four seconds? That would take like 30 seconds… But I agree Premier sucks.
Nice send though.
I’m pretty new at this whole video and picture editing and I’m sure there’s a way to do it. Your method sounds simple but would probably take me a while to figure it out. Thanks though.

[…] is a super cool boulder! The normal standing start to Velcro V13 (fb 8B). And I can ensure you that the sloper is really bad. I tried it shortly when I was in Squamish. Could not manage. The guy who did the FA, Tim Doyle, […]
You should try Final Cut, works great!
That was awesome good job! thanks for the video!
