I’ll be honest. Rock climbing is, to me personally, the least inspiring sport that we cover. I’ve never been a climber, and the photos are mostly unrelatable to me. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always had a great deal of respect for the sport—but the surrounding media has never been my personal favourite.
But every once in awhile, a piece of content comes through that reveals a new side of the sport—and Tara Kerzhner’s winning slideshow from the Arctery’x Climbing Academy does just that.
Each year, photographers team up with a few climbers and are given a few days to shoot around the climbing mecca of Squamish, BC. Check out the winning slideshow from this years showdown—it’s more than worth your time.—ML
