Inspired by “The Golden Ticket”

Recently, professional climber Michaela Kiersch made the first female ascent of The Golden Ticket in Red River Gorge, a 5.14c. Below is the full edit of the short film, “The Golden Ticket.” Michaela is inspirational. She’s a full-time undergraduate student at DePaul University in Chicago, manages to squeeze in a few training sessions a week between classes, and then makes the seven hour drive down to the RRG nearly every weekend.

So much for my lame excuses to not hit the gym anymore when I LITERALLY have nothing else to do besides catch up on Netflix……

From the film: “That whole stigma that girls won’t do this route because the moves work a certain way, I just don’t think that it’s true anymore. We have so many strong female climbers out there, I think anything is possible. I don’t think there are really any barriers stopping anyone from doing something that they set their mind to, especially in climbing.”

Hell yeah. Anything is possible.
