Jöttnar Pro Team members Mike Pescod and Willis Morris roped up last week for a filmed ascent of the Ben Nevis testpiece, 'Babylon' (VII,8), followed by a speedwing descent from the summit plateau. 

Not everything went to plan though. 

It was a brutally cold day's filming that covered lenses in frost and made a drone camera freeze and fall from the sky.  Willis had hoped to launch his speedwing from the summit but strong winds and poor visibility dictated otherwise.  A superb day's climbing though.

Watch the short film and browse the photos below.
