Stone LocalsIt's easy to get tied up in grades, the suffering or remoteness of climbing.

We spend our mornings talking about future adventures, far away or local and personal triumphs and hardships of daily life over a cup of coffee while we wait for the temps to rise.

Patagonia's Stone Locals really highlights the sense of community in climbing culture. Watch here, free, now.
