the pursuit | a rock climbing video essay

I can’t believe how far I’ve come since this moment, which seems like a lifetime away but really was only 8ish months ago (I know I say 6 in the VO, my bad y’all). Dealing with fear has been a major part of my journey for my first 2 years sport climbing, and I’ve tried to be super honest and open about my journey. I wanted to capture the genuine difficulty I had overcoming the fear of falling (and failure) alongside the emotional turmoil of moving across the country, a political shit show for my communities back home, and general homesickness.

It’s my almost 6k sub special… I’ve been doing a special video per 1k new subs but after finishing this one today, I feel very ready to share it 🙂
