I've been taking a wee group of pupils from my school to our local wall. Next week is our last session but I'd like to do a follow up in class where we can watch some climbing films to give them an idea of what climbing has to offer.

I'm clueless on this as I don't really watch such things. Can anyone suggest some viewing suitable for 13/14 year olds just dipping a toe in the water of climbing?

I suppose I'm looking for stuff that won't require too much knowledge, isn't too long (5-15mins) and that shows people having fun doing different types of climbing.

Cheers.

Hi, take a look at the Wideboyz channel.on you tube. Especially some of the parkour vids with Toby Segar. Always entertaining and many are about 15 mins long. 

Cheers, Gwain.

What about Seafever? It's short and snappy at 210 minutes and I think hearing Steve Findlay and Pat Littlejohn lament about the clean-hand gang will really appeal to that age group especially if they are new to the sport

Just the first 30secs should get their attention! Classic

How about some videos featuring Ashima Shiraishi?

You could pick out films of her climbing when she was a similar age to the kids in your class, which would also help break any preconceptions that climbing is only for white males.

She's featured in one of the the Reel Rock films (11 according to Wikipedia) but it might just be easier to build up a playlist from many of the shorter videos about her available on YouTube.

Some of Magnus Midtbo's would probably fit the bill, so would be worth a look.

Here's one that I think will be super inspiring for kids:

I found this trying to find another one from a few years ago where she reflected on her climbing growing up but I didn't find it, I think it might have been an Epic vid.
