Epic Aerial Footage Of Mountain Hiking Reminds Me Of How Tiny We Are

Epic aerial footage of mountain hiking reminds me of how tiny we are

Whatever you're stressing about right now, try to clear your head by watching this epic video of a mountain climber attacking the Ledge Route of Ben Nevis, Scotland. We're just a small part of this world, it stretches beyond what we can see. Winter is ending, adventures are beginning. Enjoy it!

Rob Johnson, who filmed it, writes:

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! The footage has been edited in FCP-X and the music is royalty free from Pond 5.
