Climbing Video

Post by GerrySeavo » Thu May 07, 2015 12:07 am

Hey Y'all. My name is Gerry James. I am an outdoor adventure writer/photographer. I am working on a rock climbing assignment for Kentucky Tourism and I have been out here climbing/training for the past month. This Saturday myself and another videographer seek to climb/shoot with a group and then rally at Miguels in the evening. The video will be showcase the experience of climbing in the Red. Anyone down to join us?!

There was an ad running on local TV for a while about Kentucky tourism, had a clip about climbing, showed a guy clapping chalk while taking on some route in the gorge. I know that was filmed by kentucky tourism, it was professionally made. Any association between that and this?

I think you have me mistaken. I have only been climbing with the guide services and a few others. The purpose of me being down here is to show a POV perspective of learning to climb in the Red.

Gerry-

Good luck. You should keep in mind that some people refer to individuals requiring assistance as 'Jerries'. Furthermore, Thomas Mann's 1927 novel 'The Magic Mountain' is prescient, he wrote:

Life flitted across the screen before their smarting eyes: life chopped into small sections, fleeting, accelerated; a restless, jerky fluctuation of appearing and disappearing, performed to a thin accompaniment of music, which set its actual tempo to the phantasmagoria of the past, and with the narrowest of means at its command, yet managed to evoke a whole gamut of pomp and solemnity, passion, abandon, and gurgling sensuality. It was a thrilling drama of love and death they saw silently reeled off,...

Gerry, if you have the opportunity it might be worthwhile to gently point out the hypocrisy of state officials who wish to promote rockclimbing tourism in eastern Kentucky on one hand while at the same time forbidding climbing on state-managed lands such as Natural Bridge State Park and the Ashland WMA. Climbers have essentially self-funded the purchase and management of private property as a result of such discriminatory policies, and now the state wishes to cash in on the resulting tourism while giving nothing back. At the very least, a mention of the importance of financially supporting organizations such as the RRGCC, Friends of Muir Valley, and the Access Fund would be appreciated.
