I’m not sure if Wales realised what hit it last weekend. 20 women, 6 crew, a drone, 3 cameras, sound & a professional photographer – it was quite a scene. The Idwal Slabs in Ogwen Valley & slate quarries near Llanberis were the locations chosen to host our filming of these 20 women, aged 18-65. It was an incredible weekend with a group of ordinary everyday women being their extraordinary selves, having fun and doing some climbing for our film. Yep, girls, climbing, on film, we know it’s a novelty that many of you may not have experienced, but we’re hoping to contribute to the small, but increasing pool of amazing climbing films featuring the fairer sex as the main protagonists. Thank you to all the brilliant women who took off a whole weekend to come and climb.
Particular thanks to:
David Fox and crew, David & Daniel, from Flying Fox Aerial Photography
Mike Whitehurst: Assistant & rigger
Natasha Hirst: Photographer & 2nd camera
