"This month's video short takes you to the warm limestone cliffs of Lions Head, Ontario. I'm sure most of you are ready for spring so I thought this chapter would be most appropriate to get you in the spirit of warm, sunny rock climbing. Lions Head is located along the beautiful Bruce Peninsula. To most people Lions Head is a peaceful port village surrounded by spectacular limestone cliffs. But to Ontario climbers this is one of the best sport climbing crags around. Follow along as we explore the cliffs of Lions Head. Locals; Greg Williamson and Leslie Timms, show our visiting American climbers Sam Elias, Emily Harrington and Lauren Lee the classic routes of the area.
Greg Williamson is the local climber who lives minutes outside of Lions Head. He and his friends were kind enough to show us around the area and give us key beta. We stayed here for 6 days and climbed everyday. The filming for this chapter was relatively easy compared to the other chapters of this film. The way the cliffs were arranged made it very easy for me to setup on top of the climbs and shoot across at a nice downward angle. I shot this chapter with my Panasonic HVX 200; but added quite a few additions to create some of these shots. For the majority of the shooting I had a 35mm lens adaptor on my camera which allowed me to mount my Nikon 300m f2.8 lens. It was this lens that allowed me to zoom close enough while being so far away. Hope you enjoy the short.
Don't forget to tell your friends about the tour!!!"
