Climbing Video: Heart of Stone, Climbing Access in the Southeast

Author: No Comments Share:

On the theme of climbing access, please take some time to view the documentary Heart of Stone, a film from Andrew Kornylak and Josh Fowler.

This is a fantastic, must-watch climbing video. I spent a lot of time climbing and bouldering in the Southeast and this film really hits home emphasizing the access issues as well as nature of the climbing there.

From the filmmakers:

It’s no secret that the Southeastern US has some of the best rock climbing in the country. Grassroots organizations like the Southeastern Climbers Coalition and the Carolina Climbers Coalition are gaining and preserving access to this treasure in a unique way – by buying it. the annual Triple Crown Bouldering Competition – the largest outdoor climbing competition in the world – is at the center of this access revolution. This new film celebrates what many are calling a Golden Age of discovery and stewardship in the South. It’s a look at the miraculous mix of activism, generosity and respect for tradition, in the Heart of Stone.
