The Climbing Works International Festival will take place this weekend in Sheffield, England. A stellar team of routesetters will prepare tens of problems for the hundreds of climbers that will take part in this 9th edition.
We talk a lot about the really hard problems (V13 flashes, V16 proposals…) but most of us spend our climbing hours facing easier stuff. And that’s the beauty of climbing. There are thousands of “easy” problems that are beautiful, challenging, inspiring and worth climbing regardless of your skill level. This is one of them.
Last December Light Shed Pictures released Project Mina, a climbing documentary about British climber Mina Leslie-Wujastyk. It is quite a unique film that touches all aspects of Mina’s climbing career, from the hard indoor training to rock climbing and the high-pressure environment of international competitions.
