How do you become one of the best climbers in the world? Julia Chanourdie was twelve years old when she climbed the 8th degree bar. Today, at the age of 24, she is one of a few women to have reached 9b, the equivalent of the maximum level in climbing. An accomplished athlete since her teenage years, Julia was first introduced to climbing by her father, a passionate climber who has remained her coach.

For the past three years, Julia has been climbing incessantly and qualified for the Tokyo Olympics. She has become the incredible climber that her father never doubted. This is the story of Julia’s passion, a story between a father and his gifted daughter.
