Climbing — the fringy, grungy sport of dirtbags — is headed to the biggest athletic stage on Earth: the 2010 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

This new film by Sender introduces us to the blistering subdiscipline, a much-scoffed at world of interesting warm-up dances, powerful vertical sprinting and competition that’s nothing to joke about.
