Darin,

Thanks for posting this. Really nice!

Being a film maker myself, I can tell you, pulling this off was no small feat. What an amazing video!

Not the first time I've seen photos of the Polar Star Couloir, but wow! Still takes my breath away. Can't imagine climbing on just a few inches of snow over blue ice, especially with that much runout below me...

Awesome video!

I almost always wear a bathing suit when I climb. If you see me say hey!
