Em: A profile of Emilie Pellerin

Emilie Pellerin is likely the best climber you’ve never heard of. Knowing this might be true for much of the climbing world, friend and filmmaker, Alexa Fay, set out to make things right. In her directorial debut film project “Em”, Alexa and Emilie place you at the beginning of the story of how one woman’s natural ability, forever positive problem solver’s mindset, and commitment to the “dirtbag life” has turned her into a yet to be known force in climbing. From the trip to Spain that pushed her to pursue her passion full time, her onsight climb of Squamish’s iconic and notoriously difficult “The Shadow” (5.13a) pitch in 2018, and through her latest challenge, “La Zébrée”, a 5.14a trad route featuring a soaking wet overhanging crack that has sent even the strongest climbers home packing, this film puts Emilie front and centre.
