Video: Safe Haven – The Story of Building a Climbing Gym in Urban Memphis

Climbing can be an escape for many of us, both literally and figuratively. No more is that evident than in this video, which tells the story of an urban climbing gym located in Memphis, Tennessee. No one thought building a climbing gym in this setting was a good idea, and yet the team behind it went ahead anyway. Now, it is having an impact on the lives of those in the neighborhood, possibly showing those young people that they can escape too.
