Troll Wall - Rock Climbing Slow TV?

Romsdals Budstikke Nett (RBNett) online newpaper yesterday carried a feature showing the development of an NRK Slow TV project for a rock climbing Minutt for Minutt. It would concern climbing the more than one kilometre sheer rock face of the Trollveggen - or Troll Wall mountain. One could imagine that instead of being the relaxing journey associated with Slow TV, it would be a sustained adrenaline cliff hanging exercise.

"We think it is a good idea and have begun talking with climbers, rescue groups and police to find out if there is a realizable idea, says Thomas Hellum, project manager for the broadcast. We will have a planning meeting with potential partners at the end of this month, said Hellum - stressing that it is primarily security determines whether there will be any project." More in Norwegian here.

Absolutely. Imagine the risk assessment form for this and controlling the hazards to the participants.
