The Story

A group of four women band together to make rock climbing more accessible in Banff, Canada. Every run is a puzzle waiting to be solved, and if the Crush Collective has anything to do with it, gender norms will not be part of the equation.

We Are Crush is an attempt to capture the supportive environment created by the Crush Collective in Banff, AB. Climbers are invited to be vulnerable together in the climbing gym. The project was completed as a final project at the Banff Centre.
