FRI NIGHT VID: Puerto Rico - Climbing out of Disaster

In September 2017, hurricane Maria barreled across the Atlantic and slammed full force into Puerto Rico. With winds recorded at up to 175 mph, the natural disaster devastated the island, leaving a path of destruction in its wake. Bryant Huffman - a 39-year-old climbing guide from Cupey, Puerto Rico - realised that the only way up after hitting rock bottom was to climb. Now, he and his guides are using their ropes and gear not to just bolt and climb new routes, but to pull their island out of disaster. Check out this film featuring the guides of Climbing Puerto Rico as they face the aftermath of a brutal hurricane.
