Stone Locals - Rediscovering the Soul of Rock Climbing

Climbing has always been more than just a sport. It’s provided a way of life and a makeshift family to misfits who share a calling. As the sport grapples with its growing popularity, the people who anchor its core and community have more responsibility than ever. This film tells the stories of five of these anchors, the Stone Locals who keep the soul of climbing and nurture it as the sport evolves.

Directed by Mikey Schaefer and Cheyne Lempe

Watched this tonight with my son (17) and found it interesting.

A thoughtful climbing film that’s more about the people than the climbing.

It doesn’t shy away from some difficult aspects of people’s lives in terms of what they have been through, but it still feels very authentic.

Also beautifully shot and edited.

Well done to all involved.

Po-faced to the max.

I liked the quote following the revelations about the personal stories - "Climbing isn't the answer. It can lead you to an answer".

Beautiful editing. Avalonia was by far my favorite segment. Such a poetic piece, person.
