Rock Crawling DVD - Climb - Media Review

Climb takes you into the growing world of competitive rockcrawling. Got Rocks 4x4 has released this new DVD in hope of shedding some light on popular myths surrounding the sport, and also to bring some education and excitement to a world that many may not have known existed.

Commentating and competing in the events throughout the film is Johnny G, one of the most famous names in the industry. He has been a crucial element to the growth of rockcrawling over the past few years. His high-energy driving style has made him a fan favorite. Bart Jacobs, another commentator in the film, has been nicknamed "The Professor" because he has been around since rockcrawling's conception as a motorsport. He is well known for being one of the top competitors in the sport across the globe. The DVD is not short on letting us see and hear from the top people involved in the sport (instead of your typical narrator reading from a script) in order to allow us to really know what it's like to do it.

One section of the film that stood out for us was seeing what it takes to create the man-made courses of the UROC events - how the courses are laid out, what materials are used, and why it has to be done a certain way. Great footage!

By far the best aspect of this film is the action and driving skills of the competitors. Anyone out there who thinks rockcrawling is only about building your rig and punching the gas needs to purchase this DVD and get the popcorn ready. Watching someone take on an obstacle like "The Wall" where you go from a dead-flat surface to straight up is intense. How they all didn't roll back down is beyond us.

On top of all that, the DVD has a great compilation of music by Burning View, Inner City Surfers, Point Defiance, Stitch Riley, Gigland, Flavor, and many more. We definitely recommend you pick this one up as it will be a welcome addition to your four-wheeling video collection.
