Let's see where this goes. I feel like I've recently been seeing more videos from climbers of all sorts of backgrounds and thought that it would be cool if there were a positive place to highlight these inspiring films. Please post up awesome videos of climbers from groups that you feel are underrepresented in the climbing world or the media.

I'll start with Felipe Camargo crushing El Bon Combat 5.15b


Although I'm not an indoor climber, watching the Mawem brothers is still entertaining and helps me to appreciate the sport more

With most of the bear climbing videos focusing on polar bears, I thought this one was refreshing.

Homegirl needs to hear what this guy says at the end and stop worrying about what color or gender people are.

Here is a link to the full movie (1:19) of David Lama free climbing Cerro Torre.

It was controversial while it was being filmed because of the added bolts and abandoned ropes by the film crew -- they got an earful, and changed their style.

Really great accomplishment and well documented.

A very beautiful short about indigenous Bolivian women and climbing. There's some other material on Youtube about them as well; it looks like a documentary is in the works..

Literally anything by Lonnie Kauk. Dude makes the first crux of Taste the Pain at Donner Summit look like V1- after trying it like 10 times from a hang I couldn’t pull it. Never fall for how easy he makes things look!

Im tired of all these climbing videos of humans. What about the felines that are out here crushing? As a human I feel so oppressed for them! I am so offended that someone made a documentary about Alex Megos climbing 5.15c but didnt even consider making a video about Whiskers climbing the sofa in my living room!

Claws are aid. Aid is stupid.
