Tips for shooting climbing video 14-Jun-2007 At 12:53:51 AM cheesehead
I simple camera-steady is to girth hitch a prussick through your belay-loop. Loop this over the top of the camera and keep it pulled upward in tension. This gives you a mono-pod for all intents.

Another little 'cheat' is to lean the camera against your abseil rope. This is similar to leaning against a wall/post when shooting from the ground

As for keeping the rope out of the shot, I abseil with a rope-bucket (rope bag open on one end) clipped off my harness. Onsight's rope-hook is quicker if you're changing your position a lot. The rope-bucket is quicker when you're just descending (kind of the opposite to what one usually needs...) or staying put.
