A few weeks ago we were involved in a top secret project! Climbing legend Magnus Midtbø came to Sydney to film some “beginner climbing” videos. Adopting the persona of 'Erik', a Swedish hipster with no prior climbing experience, he undergoes a dramatic transformation. With dyed hair, spray tan, beard, glasses, tattoos, piercings, and hipster attire, he's unrecognisable.
The mission: to prank some unsuspecting staff and customers at climbing gyms around Sydney. This is the video he shot at Kirrawee.
Paul recognised him immediately- but then the lovely Manny became the next target.
He had no idea until “Erik” crushed the 10 on the lead roof.
"Climbing isn't just about reaching the top, it's about the journey."
"Climbing builds not just physical strength, but also mental resilience."
"Every route is a new puzzle to solve."
"Climbing is a brain booster that enhances focus and concentration."
"100% of climbs you don't do, you fail."
Loved being a part of this project!
Keep an eye out for the other vids shot in Sydney at other gyms.
