Video Friday: Swanky Swizzy

Earlier this year Alex Savage and Les Warnock set out on a dream road trip that would take them to Fontainebleau, France, Ticino, Switzerland and Rocklands, South Africa over the course of 7 months.  Unfortunately for them the trip is over, but the selfish side of me is glad that they are home because now they have the time to put together quality videos like the one below.

Before we get to the video though, here’s a quick recap of what’s it all about:

During our four month stay in Europe this year, Les Warnock and I (Alex) lived in Bellinzona, Switzerland for five weeks to explore the bouldering of Ticino which is home to some of the finest granite blocs in the world. Check out our adventures as we see what the bouldering of Ticino is all about. This short film (16 min) features everything from 8B boulder problems to the tallest unguided bungee jump in the world!

    The best climbing short I know of. By far.

      Yeah. Except, of course, “Easy day at the Lake”, by Narc. 🙂

        Yes, that was a true classic that will be talked about for years 🙂
