Welcome to the Friday Flicks! Every Friday we kick off your weekend with a fun, fitness-related video you've never seen before. If you've missed previous weeks, you can catch up on them HERE!


Welcome to South Africa, and to the world of sport climbing. Sport climbing places an emphasis on gymnastic ability, strength, and endurance, and in this video the climbing is as beautiful as the scenery and the lines. Watch accomplished young female climber Sasha DiGiulian complete a first ascent in Waterval Boven, South Africa, naming it "Rolihlahla," which is South African president Nelson Mandela's middle name.
