Sea Stack Lightnin’



In this short film climbing guide Iain Miller and visiting American Climber Eric Roden make a late afternoon ascent of the little known Bristi Sea Stack found in The Rosses area of western Donegal.

Sea Stack climbing in Western Donegal is the most adventurous commercially available activity in Ireland and Bristi Stack as featured in the film is just one of over 60 stacks found along the Donegal coast.

In fairness.

    Maybe it’s just me but I find these types of YouTube videos very disconcerting.
    They only serve to encourage a bigger idiot to do something more stupid for as many ‘clicks’.

    There are too many desperate and susceptible idiots out there.
    It’s irresponsible.

      Ahem, Broadsheet….
      … You don’t know how to generate ‘clickbait’ as well as I know how to quell and calm it.

      This post is not the best example but you know what I mean.

      For instance, look what happens next…

        I don’t know.
        You’re asking the wrong person.

        Which is ironic, if you’re American and don’t understand Irony.

        My philosophy came from Playskool’ on BBC.
        I thought Brian Cant was a person who could, and I was in love with Floella Benjamin.
        They were difficult years for me.
        I was in my late teens.
        Fupp off.

        Nobody understands me.

          I attribute my sexual awakening to Floella Benjamin. Round window, square window… I didn’t give a fupp.

            That brought quite the image to my mind.

            Which is rather in the gutter, unsurprisingly.

            It’s why I can never have a one night stand.
            You can’t just spring it someone that you need her to hum the Tales of the Unexpected theme tune and dance in their nude, it takes months of subtle planning and groundwork.

            but now that you know Mildred….

    Yea, arrest those criminals at once. Bet they never asked Vlad for permission.I must ring Moan Duffy right away.

    For their next trick they could attempt a nude bungee jump when nobody except the cameraman is watching.

    You were around 60 inches from the shore, you fupping muppets. You could have jumped.
