This week's Friday Night Video takes us to the heart of Soulsville in Memphis, Tennessee, where a climbing revolution is taking place. The Memphis Rox climbing wall has become a community hub, transcending the classic business model of a climbing wall. With a "pay what you can" approach, the wall is a glimpse into the future where a climbing gym can become a crucible for diversity, inclusivity and community.
Agree, we need more climbing vids and projects like this. Beautifully shot, and excellent inspiring example of what a climbing wall can do for a community. I hope it gives more gyms ideas of what they can do.
