Video: Climbing the Towers of Tigray in Ethiopia

Adventure films have been in short supply recently, in part because most of us haven’t been able to actually go out on an adventure. Fortunately, there seems to have been a number of new options arriving on YouTube over the past few days, which means I have some good things to share in the days ahead. One of the clips that truly caught my attention—not to mention my imagination—is this beautiful film shot in Ethiopia. It takes us along with climbers James Pearson and Caro Ciavaldini, as well as their son Arthur, as they visit the dramatic landscapes of the Tigray region. Here, they discover untold adventures and ancient history, following in the footsteps of priests who would scale these rocky towers to reach hidden churches. It is a fascinating story and an outstanding family expedition that has to be seen to be believed.
