When our friend Gaz Leah came to us months ago to get his van set up with solar for a trip down to Mexico, he had no idea where his adventure would bring him.  Recently, Gaz took a moment to share with his friends on social media his experiences over his six month endeavor entitled “Project Wall-E”.  One of Project Wall-E’s main causes Escalando Fronteras, uses climbing as a way out for child soldiers in Mexico by giving them an opportunity outside of drug cartels. With some help from our friends from Three Peak Films, you’ll soon be able to experience the efforts of Escalando Fronteras.

You can read Gaz’s full story about how he came to see climbing in a powerful new light and the efforts these great climbers are taking to make the world a better place here.
