Our film of Ledge Route on Ben Nevis has been shortlisted for an award at the Dronefest film festival in London on the 27th January. It might mean a trip to the big smoke!

On Friday 13th March 2015 I took my Phantom 2 drone fitted with a GoPro Hero 4 up onto the North Face of Ben Nevis to do some aerial filming.
I climbed Ledge Route, a grade 2 winter mountaineering route, and filmed myself as I climbed.
This project took 4 batteries and I was racing to climb faster than the batteries faded, whilst composing the shots and trying to get the footage I wanted. Its pretty difficult doing it this way, the ultimate mountain selfie perhaps, its definitely easier to compose the shots when filming other people, but I enjoyed the challenge. It was a stunning day!

If you haven’t seen the film you can catch it here.¬†https://vimeo.com/122176878
