/ FRI NIGHT VID: Reach: a teenage climber defines her own limits
I thought this was brilliant, and very moving.
Well done Clare, Nick, Robin, and Hazel.
Lost for words. Almost tearful watching it. Totally stunning.
Wow wow wow. So moving and beautiful! Well done all! Especially Clare!
That’s the most inspiring thing I’ve seen this year. Talk about conquering your own Everest. The sheer vision and determination to dream like that when in her position takes my breath away. Wow
What a phenomenal bit of climbing!
Good luck with the rest of your climbing Claire.
Fan-bloody-tastic. Humbling and inspiring, well done Clare, what a film!
What a badass, to hold out for climbing rather than sock monkeys!
Also, what an eloquent writer/speaker -- it sounds like she's always loved climbing literature, and I wonder if she's ever thought of writing articles or a blog about her climbing?
Fantastic and humbling and inspiring. Clare is a superstar and the people who help her to climb are just amazing. I'm full of respect for them all. What a life-enriching film. brilliant.
Some of the best *** climbing I’ve ever seen. Great stuff that girl. A real legend
Just watched this. Lost for words. Inspirational girl and those involved should be so proud of their achievements
Brilliant and inspiring. She sums up climbing very nicely!
What an amazing woman. I never thought the day would come when I'd be watching footage of Horseshoe quarry with tears rolling down my face.
Amazing to see how far she has come. Also an eye opener as to the benefits of exercise for all. Often I see people with physical disabilities and don't think about how their abilities could improve with training. The progress from needing her hands to be velcroed to the jumar to then using holds with hands and feet is incredible! What a testament to this young lady's determination and that of her team.
