Brothers of Climbing

Jason Zemlicka, Jamie Hubbard, Duncan Sullivan | 2017 | 7 min.

2018 Official Selection

How can you be what you can’t see? Mikhail Martin, co-founder of Brothers of Climbing said, “I literally typed, ‘Are there black climbers?’ in Google … someone said, ‘black people don’t climb.’”

A small group of climbers began to challenge that thought. The Brothers of Climbing is a crew that’s making the climbing community more welcoming. Watch to see how they created a community where one wasn’t.
