Dave Macleod treats us to a blow by blow account of his recent first ascent of ‘Zero’, 8B. Like most of Dave’s content, this is a thorough and introspective video – this particular episode being a breakdown of his projecting process for Zero, discussing his tactical approach to a boulder that doesn’t really suit his climbing strengths. What makes Macleod’s channel so special is the wealth of climbing knowledge that he offers with every video, whether it’s a tutorial or an excursion into the Scottish hills, there’s always something new to learn or discover.
Dave brings a really personal feel to all of his videos, providing a unique insight into his life and climbing adventures. Macleod is the master of all things climbing but always remains a student of the climbing game, researching and experimenting with his own climbing performance. The subtle Scot writes books, creates informative training videos and cruises his way through the most impressive trad tick list these shores have witnessed. From his training den to the sublime Scottish Hebrides, Dave’s channel is an eclectic mix of everything our climbing passions desire. Get stuck in and enjoy!
