Great Video of Peter Croft and Lisa Rands on the Hulk

I recently came across a cool video of Peter Croft and Lisa Rands climbing the Venturi Effect (IV 5.12+) on the Incredible Hulk in the northern Sierra. Croft put this one up with the prolific Dave Nettle in 2004. Impressive route and impressive video. Great footage of Croft flowing up the crux corner, as well as Lisa Rands fighting hard on the upper crux. It was cool to see Lisa Rands doing her best to fight and maintain composure while onsighting 5.12+. While she expresses some self-doubt in this video (pretty crazy since she's done Gaia), it might be an indicator of how intimidating it must be to "partner up" with Croft.
Croft is famous for his amazing solos, unbelievable alpine traverses, and incredible list of First Free Ascents. Examples of some of these include: the Shadow (onsight of the 5.13 crux corner) in Squamish, the first one-day link-up of the El Capitan and Half Dome, and the first free-solo link-up of Astroman and the Rostrum. Rands is famous for winning World Cup Bouldering Comps, being the first female to climb the distressing E8 grade, and incredibly hard and high bouldering, among other accomplishments.
