By China Climbing Documentary Project | February 28th, 2018

Meet Xiaolu, a young woman from Liuzhuo, China, who—after learning to climb—would dash off to the crag, during her short breaks from her job working at a sushi restaurant, to squeeze in whatever climbing she could.  Wanting even more time to climb , she moved to Yangshuo, where she opened a dumpling shop. “Basically I sold dumplings in the morning and then went climbing in the afternoon and then made dumplings again at night,” Xiaolu says in the film.
