Climbing is headed to the Olympics, these PEI folks though...

Living on a sandbar doesn't stop the climbing community from growing

Earlier this week, a documentary on the home climbing gym phenomenon on Canada's tiniest province, Prince Edward Island, was released. 

It might have lost a little thunder with all the brouhaha over climbing make its Olympic Games debut in 2020, but it has its own special charm.

The Wrong Horse Production team responsible for the documentary acknowledged quite freely that PEI is "probably the last place you'd expect to find climbers," given the entire place is sandstone.

But there they were plain as day, hardy locals who decided a DIY approach was best and they started building climbing gyms on their own, in their homes. A community took root. And, that community is chronicled in the short but sweet documentary Pulling Plastic. 

Check it out.
