Every year the world’s top competition climbers gather to test themselves on the IFSC Climbing World Cup circuit. For these athletes climbing is not just a pastime it is a passion, a lifestyle, a motivating force that drives them to succeed. Every season they travel the globe testing themselves against the devilish inventions of the World Cup routesetters with the goal of proving themselves the best in the World.

The Circuit talks to the climbers, the coaches, the routesetters about what makes them tick, where they’ve come from and what is their vision of the future. We also talk with some of the greatest outdoor climbers, asking what it takes to chase the cold, looking for the perfect line, the perfect problem and the perfect conditions.
