This week we’re featuring a beautifully shot film that showcases the passionate character of the locals and the incredible climbing in Leavenworth, Washington —one of the PNW’s most popular climbing destinations.

In this short documentary, two Leavenworth boulderers share their thoughts on the captivating elements of this sport and the essence of climbing culture that pull us all together.

I like the mental puzzle of it. I think that piecing together moves in a sequence, and climbing something that has been there for thousands of years or millions of years … it’s meaningful.
