Have you been to Earth's Playground?

Christian Lanley climbs big rocks and snow covered mountains for so much more an outdoor activity.

"It is exploration beyond the world and, deep into yourself."

Like many different communities throughout the world, the rock climbing one as he describes it, is like a family.

"A climbing trip can have an immense impact on a group of friends, or even complete strangers- and solidify lasting bonds between people. That's what I tried to show in this video of my last trip to Joshua Tree, California. It's more than just a short climbing video, it is a first person account of what happens when you get out with your friends and challenge each other on Earth's playgrounds."
