The People of Climbing Fri Night Vid

© Josh Greenwood

This week's Friday Night Video is a candid look at race and equity in the outdoor industry from the perspective of people of colour attending the '2018 Colour the Crag' Festival in Steele, Alabama. The film interviews attendees of the festival who share their opinions and stories based on their own experiences in the outdoors.

The film examines the barriers for BAME climbers in the US and their thoughts on how to move forward, with an emphasis on the need for more representation in the outdoor industry, along with the need for a process of systematic change.

Great video, it will hopefully start new conversations between climbing walls, companies and BIPOC.
