These four climbers all have very different relationships with the climbing gym and wildly differing approaches to climbing in general. Nowhere is that more apparent than when they’re all pulling on plastic together and as the group sets different projects for each other, individual strengths begin to emerge.

More than that however, attitudes towards the role of indoor climbing are challenged as Alex is forced to admit that you can’t simply power your way through everything at the gym and Tommy begins to see the benefits of the explosive training style of which Alex is a major proponent.
