ClimbAR - An Arkansas Rock Climbing Documentary

<p>The goal of this thesis project, ‘ClimbAR’ - a rock climbing documentary - is to tell the story of a fringe sport/outdoor activity in the state of Arkansas. The history of the sport has been passed down primarily by word of mouth and contained within a small, tight knit group of Arkansas rock climbers since its humble beginnings in the 1980s. Though many of the original climbers in the state have since moved on, a new generation of adventurers have taken the reins. This film focuses on the newest generation of Arkansas rock climbers.</p><p>Like many climbers in the state, this story uses Cole Fennel’s guidebooks, “Rock Climbing Arkansas” Vol. I &amp; II, to more accurately portray the wide variety of rock climbing locations in the Ozarks.</p>
