Why We Climb (c) UKClimbing TV

Earlier this year UKClimbing and Rab teamed up to create a film that captured the heart and soul of the Women's Trad Festival. Irrespective of whether you're young or old, male or female, new or experienced, the reasons why we climb are much the same: for the friends, for the movement, for the people, for the places, and perhaps most of all - because it's fun.
