New Life with Caroline Ciavaldini and James Pearson Fri Night Vid

© The North Face

This week's Friday Night Video documents the shifting priorities that come with raising a son in a world that revolves around climbing and the outdoors. Follow Caroline Ciavaldini and James Pearson as they navigate their new lives, try to maintain their sponsorships and continue their expedition-led lifestyles. 

When they considered having children in 2018, the couple asked themselves tough questions about how their free-spirited lifestyle might change. Would Caroline be able to return to form post-birth? How would they introduce their child to risk-taking and exploration? Would Caro and James' perspectives on their own risk-taking change?

New Life follows the couple as they embark on a life of new adventures as a family: from climbing in Sardinia while Caro is heavily pregnant to adapting to life at home with a newborn in the south of France, and Caro's journey from struggling on easy routes to attempting the notorious trad route Gaia (E8 6c) and an 8b multi-pitch sport climb in the Verdon.
