VIDEO: Colin's First Climb - Do What You Can Now

A legend of the North Wales climbing scene, Colin Goodey has over 40 first ascents to his name and has been an active climber for over 70 years. Now in his 80s and facing terminal illness, Colin decides to 'do what he can now' and chooses to climb one last route: the first one he ever did, aged 10, bringing a '70 year love affair with the mountains' full circle.

Filmmaker Rob Johnson has shared this touching short film about Colin's journey.
