    Stone Locals

    Cheyne Lempe (2020)

    Climbing has always been more than just a sport. It’s provided a way of life and a makeshift family to misfits who share a calling. As the sport grapples with its growing popularity, the people who anchor its core and community have more responsibility than ever. This film tells the stories of five of these anchors, the Stone Locals who keep the soul of climbing and nurture it as the sport evolves, and does it by following climbers from 5 different communities: Kathy Karlo, Daniel Pohl, Dario Ventura, The Keithley family, and Katsutaka “Jumbo” Yokoyama.

    Lucky Monkey

    Cheyne Lempe (2013)

    Cheyne Lempe sheds light on his experiences in Yosemite and Patagonia. Lempe set the new solo speed record on Salathe Wall while also working the season on the search and rescue team. The ups and downs of climbing in two iconic, beautiful places. Lempe says: I tried my absolute hardest to capture my experiences while operating at my physical, mental, and emotional limit during the climbs and rescues. Though, during these difficult times, it felt pointless, inappropriate, and greatly inconvenient to pull out my camera. After the fact, I can't express how thankful I am to have captured such unique moments. I'm unbelievably lucky to be continually surrounded by incredible people in such inspiring places.
