Climbers Behind The Lense

It’s not a secret that I was not a big fan of the climbing movie Specimen made by Chuck Fryberger. With that said, I have really enjoyed most of his short videos (if you fast forward through his seeming overuse of really old films in between climbing shots). The really cool thing (to me at least) is that Chuck is also an accomplished climber in his own right. He recently repeated Lungfish (.14b) at Rifle, and he has been known to send his share of double digit boulder problems. Here are two short videos he made during the filming of Specimen last year at the Rocklands of South Africa:

Along with Chuck, there are several climbing filmmakers that can pull down in their own right when they aren’t shooting video of the latest mutant establishing the latest testpiece. Guys like Wade David, Chad Greedy and Cooper Roberts come to mind. Who did I forget?
