Points of Contact | Voices from our climbing community

Author(s): Patagonia
Video Release Date: May 5, 2021

Though we say it in different ways, our message is the same: Climbing is our home. Each climber’s story is a point of contact into the broader community of stone. Whether we do it to find connection within ourselves, with each other, with the land, or for the food (okay, it’s always kind of for the food), climbing shapes us as individuals and a collective. Though our stories are distinct, they are also familiar. These are the voices that make up a community; the ones that call us back home.
