Every year the world's greatest climbers and adventurers push the boundaries of what can be achieved, but climbers and alpinists don't perform in stadiums and their feats aren't broadcast live, on TV - they toil alone, on the wall and far from the world's gaze.
As a result, a unique culture of cinematography has grown up around climbing. People that endevour to record these historic moments - artists in extreme, remote and difficult locations - all striving to capture the greatest achievements - and the greatest achievements are happening right now, in our time. We have entered a new golden age for climbing as an athletic pursuit as well as a creative art-form.
BoxMonkey.tv is a project to map the creative industry around climbing. Every climber that has ever lived, every cinematographer, production house, sponsor and festival that forms the body of creative arts in climbing and alpinism - all of them will be recorded and meticulously tagged so that the connections between us all are mapped.
Browse films to get psyched and inspired for your next climb or sit back and enjoy the work of others.
