Video: Shred-It In Place — A Climber Makes Due During COVID-19 Outbreak

The coronavirus has us all going a little stir crazy as we “shelter in place” and practice “social distancing.” But the climber in this video found a way to entertain himself by setting up some new routes in his girlfriend’s house, discovering “unclimbed walls” to explore in the process. The climbing might not be as difficult and challenging as he would normally like, but the video is worth a chuckle or two along the way. I especially like his climbing partner, who comes along for the ride without much in the way of protest. Other than not really wanting to wear a helmet anyway.
