Ben Moon Interview on

Thursday, 26 September 2013

'I always wanted to be an Alpinist.'

'I'll take 9a. I was the first person to climb 9a!'

The team over at have put together this great interview with World climbing legend Ben Moon. UKB's Simon Lee asks the questions, and the film is put together by Guy Van Greuning.

Ben talks about his motivations, how he always wanted to be an alpinist but was sidetracked by rock climbing, some of the routes he's done including Hubble, the world's first 9a, his famous partnership and friendship with Jerry Moffatt, and the climbing he's been doing in the last few years, including getting back into sport climbing.

We'll be publishing Statement, the Ben Moon story, in 2014.
