What You Have To Do?

Film or have filmed a short climbing or mountaineering clip, it could be of your mate leading or even a short piece acted by a whole troupe of climbers, the brief is wide open, it could be a clip of beautiful mountain scene with an environmental theme, the ascent of a boulder problem, a fall, or a funny sketch. It's up to you, but it must be your own work.

A long relationship with the Virgin by Francis Holland.

We presume that this is the Virgin traverse at Almscliff in North Yorkshire. In fact it is. Francis does say who the climber is, Ian, but what is this climber's relationship with this traverse? We just have to guess I suppose, unless Francis decides to explain or expand on the thread associated with this article/video. Maybe something to do with 21 years!

He did however provide us with this caption which goes some way to explain the context of this video clip,

"Ian spent 21 with a Virgin, more than most men can stand! However after a long relationship did he pop the cherry?" Virgin Traverse from Fran Holland on Vimeo.
