Why Don’t More People Film This Way

We all know about the GoPro head-mounted camera. It’s revolutionized the way that climbers are able to take video as it’s literally hands-free. We even have some amazing GoPro footage from the bouldering wall at Vertical Rock itself. However, this video really takes filming to the next level.

Imagine if instead of having something mounted on your head, you just had a helicopter following you around, giving you a birds-eye perspective of sending routes. This video is just abseiling, but when I saw this I immediately saw the applicability to rock climbing.
