O Mito / The Myth

July 21, 2010

A few days ago I went with Rasta (John Magelian) to film one of the prettiest lines in Sintra – O Mito.  The climb was so baptized because its existence was mythical.  The boulder was first found by a lone climber exploring the dense vegetation of the mountain.  Its moves were too demanding for the climbers of that time so it was forgotten and soon the mountain repossessed it with its rapidly growing vegetation.  Years went by and the boulder became a myth, its existence was put into question and no-one could find it to prove that it was real.

It was, of course, rediscovered.

Here is the video that I put together from Rasta’s excellent dual-camera filming.

On a side note, the Hoya Moros video from a few weeks ago has had really good reviews!  Thanks everyone for watching and sharing!!  I’ll be heading back there tomorrow night and will surely return with move footage!!
