Check out the climbing video that Sea Harp Press and I recently captured at a local crag.
I recently took one of the Sea Harp editors and his son climbing at one of my favorite crags in Colorado, Garden of the Gods, to make a Called to the Wild climbing video.
Eugene and his son, Tripp, who are avid climbers, joined me in the Garden for a stellar day of climbing.
Beyond just fun, our purpose was to capture a day in the life of climbers…to invite the viewer along on our adventure, much like the book, Called to the Wild, does.
Where we climbed
We hit up two of my favorite climbs: Cowboy Boot Crack and Family Values.
I chose Cowboy Boot Crack because it’s must do Garden classic that requires a variety of techniques like smearing and jamming and traditional protection.
Next, we checked out Family Values, a moderate sport climb on South Kindergarten rock, because it is wind sheltered and one of the prettiest walls in the park, with its vertical rock stripes that look like sandstone corduroy.
Climbing: the great connector
Getting out with Eugene and his son was fitting, considering climbing was how I first connected with Sea Harp.
The story goes, I was climbing at my local gym, City Rock, and I ran into Eugene.
We talked about ministry and Hope Has Arrived and eventually about writing. The subject of writing a devotional came up, and I mentioned Called to the Wild. He asked me to send it to him and the rest is history.
Enjoy the video…and a few sample chapters from the book
Hope you enjoy the Called to the Wild climbing video.
And if you ever get a chance to visit Garden of the Gods, check out the climbs I mentioned. You won’t be disappointed.
