Hazel Findlay is not just one of the best and boldest female trad climbers around, she's one of the best regardless of gender. But, what makes Hazel truly special is her down-to-earth personality, which shines through in this video. Join Cedar Wright as he follows Hazel up two of her hardest sends in Yosemite Valley; 'The Book of Hate' (5.13+) and the second ascent of 'The Pre-Muir' (5.13+) on El Capitan. Beyond the climbing, Cedar also gives us a look into what makes Hazel tick: what it's like to be a female in a predominately male sport, what it's like to make your living from climbing, what motivates Hazel as a climber, and what it's like to have your pick of the boys.
Hazel Findlay’s Secret To Freeing El Cap - 'Just Try' | Cedar Wright Climbing Reels, Ep. 7
For Cedar Wright, climbing is life. His dedication and passion for his sport, combined with pure hard work, means he is now able to travel the world as a pro rock climber and filmmaker full time. While compiling this Reel, Cedar says he was 'struck by how lucky he has been to travel the world and to shoot some of the world's best climbers on beautiful climbs' and was motivated to provide a 'little entertainment and inspiation for the community that has given me a career and a beautiful life'. In his new series for EpicTV, 'Cedar Wright Climbing Reels', the man himself introduces us to a short mashup of some of his favourite moments such as the first ascent of Liberty Cap in Yosemite. This is a celebration of a life well lived.
