Eddie Phay posted a 22 minute climber’s-eye video of an ascent of Shaken, Not Stirred on Vimeo. Crazy cool to watch their ascent and have it feel so familiar.

Also interesting to watch what has changed in climbing since Jim and I made the route’s FA in 1997. (Damn, those axes and screws look good… and so do those gloves.
Here’s my account of making the route’s first ascent with Jim Donini, in May 1997.
