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.
Bereits in seiner frühesten Jugend wurde Ben Moon vom Klettervirus "positiv befallen". Ein Klettertrip führte ihn mit 17 zu seinen damaligen Vorbildern wie Jerry Moffat und Martin Atkinson. Seit dem ist der zurückhaltende, auch medial sehr selektive Brite quasi ein Fixpunkt in DER Klettegeschichte!
Before he was a Wideboy, Pete Whittaker exploded onto the Peak District trad scene with a series of quick repeats of hard classics and first ascents. The crowning achievement of this period was the first ascent of "Dynamics of Change".
The video regards a Ben Moon's masterpiece, put up in November 2006. Peak District is by far one of Niky Ceria's favorite place where to go and Voyager is simply one of the many gems you can see up-there. Here the second ascent. Enjoy.
Johnny Dawes has been at the cutting edge of rock climbing for over 20 years. Now 50 years old he is still exploring and experimenting with the medium. In this short film Wayne Sharrocks attempts to explore the world of no handed climbing and follow Johnny for a day out at Stanage Edge.
