One of a Kind - The Story of Matthew Phillips

© Epic TV

This week's Friday Night Video tells the story of Matthew Phillips who started climbing at the age of 14 and quickly took the para-climbing world by storm, winning the World Championships in 2018 at the age of 18 and repeating the feat a year later. The film explores how Matthew got into climbing, his relationship with his coach, Robin O'Leary, and follows as he challenges himself on the boulders and sport climbs around Boulder, Colorado.
