The Project Magazine has collaborated with filmmaker Dan Cheetham and climber Ted Kingsnorth for This is Why.
Ted Kingsnorth is focused. The 39 year-old has climbed V12 and 8C+, works hard in a full time job, trains 4-5 days a week and gives it his all on the rock every weekend. The U.K. based climber has a varied ticklist always focussing on climbs steeped in history, from deep roots in traditional climbing and mountaineering to his current incarnation - intensely focused on hard sport climbing and bouldering. He is driven to climb not as a recreational past time but by a desire to push himself to personal limits every time. As he approaches 40 he reflects on what drives him and how he continues to progress.
