Psyche II Raffle

Psyche II is a climbing movie, made by Alastair Lee / Posing Productions in the UK. If the names Leo Houlding, Jason Pickles, El Capitan and Yosemite are familiar to you, then lemme tell ya, you gonna enjoy this movie - a lot. How about a little teaser:

Looking sweet, doesn't it? In case you don't take my word for it, take that of some who definitely know: The Kendal Mountain Film Fest gave it its Grand Prize Winner and Best Climbing Film Awards, which is only the top of a whole bunch of other awards. But as you're reading here, I reckon you're also slightly interested in what I think of it. Well, as a hobby climber this was a very inspiring movie to watch. It actually had me very psyched to go climbing and bouldering with my mates, which is a good measure on how good a movie is, me thinks. If it motivates you to go out and do what's shown, then that is pretty damn good in my book. If you follow me since a while you know that I love the scenery and wilderness in the USA. I think the country has such a vast amount of impressive wilderness beauty to offer, that every time I read about the adventures of my digital friends I get all excited and wanna go there. Anyway, I digress.

Yosemite NP is on my must visit list, and it is a prime destination for climbers and backpackers alike. The Prophet gives spectacular views of this beauty, together with a first ascent of an impressive wall. The quality is crisp & sharp and the filming offers nice perspectives, with a good mix of music and humour which make the about 45 minutes pass quickly. But that ain't all there is to see on the DVD. Hollow Caves, Bleed in Hell, Oceans of Fear, Dusk till Dawn as well as the 20 minute Extras are equally impressive, with the Hollow Caves section being my second favourite of the DVD. How about a complete trailer to give you an idea:
