A Climber and a Hunter Find Common Ground in Moving Video

In Part 1 of a series meant to celebrate public lands and common ground, a hunter and a climber come together to switch places and experience each other’s culture.

“People from different backgrounds can care about the same thing,” hunter Allie D’Andrea reminds us in the first film in a new series sponsored by Fat Tire. She meets up with New York City climber Mikhail Martin. Together, they talk about their cultures, their communities, and how public lands play into both of their lives and pursuits.

The 8-minute film gets to the heart of what we might see as divisions within the outdoor culture. Take some time to see these two dive into their differences here.
