Ken Palmer descending (!) from Christine, a French 8a he has Deep water soloed at Long Quarry Point, Devon. These images are taken from a short film of the route made by Caedmon Mullin. Ken actually managed the solo on his first attempt (after redpointing the First ascent in 2002 and a bit of rehearsal a few days before the solo) but Caedmon wanted some more exiting footage for the movie... so Ken struggled back into position on an abseil rope to get the fall footage!!
Those interested in Deep Water soloing in Devon can find more info from the jaVu guides.
