The Pedestrianisation of Climbing

The pedestrianisation of climbing takes inspiration from the bare-bone, white knuckle style of climbing embraced by the Stonemasters in the 1970's. The Stonemasters' accomplished some the greatest achievements in the sport, all whilst wearing zero performative garments we’d see in the sport today. The core value of my concept was to keep to the traditional of lifestyle theme of the Stonemasters’ whilst embracing new technical sportswear fabrications, construction techniques and trims.
