Guidebooks and a couple of my videos. All of these may be ordered using paypal. I haven't updated this website in years. It is kind of a mess. Maybe when I get some time I will clean it up.

The South's Steepest
By Steve Cater

Collector's item. Rock climbing video shot in 1992-1993. Off beat look at rock climbing in the southern U.S. Features Doug Reed, Porter Jarrard, Harrison Dekker, Jody Rozin, and the famous Frenchman J.B. Tribout climbing some of the classic routes of the south.

1993, 50 minutes. Due to schedule I do not have the time to burn the DVD's. I will try and post the video to youtube or the equivalent in the near future.


New River Gorge: A Climbing Expose
By Steve Cater

This is my first video. I've had several people ask for it since it has some good footage of Dan Osman soloing the Gunclub (5.12c) at Beauty Mountain. I can make dvd copies if someone is interested in having a copy. It also has footage of Doug Reed, Harrison Dekker, Jodie Rozin, Howie Feinsilber, Porter Jarrard and others. I now put this on the South's Steepest DVD. So you get both for the price of one. Just order "The South's Steepest" above if you want a copy of this one.

1991, 42 minutes, DVD

This comes with "The South's Steepest"
