The Network, a new documentary from Red Bull TV, has a simple premise: the vast number of boulderers around the world are actually more interconnected than they seem. Veteran climbing filmmaker Chuck Fryberger shows how elite competitors and successful semipros form a community united by their passion, work ethic, and dedication to the sport. The film showcases some of the events and climbing destinations that bring together athletes at the highest level, with footage of everything from World Cup circuit competitions to trailblazing problems in the mountains of southern Australia to the training routines of major climbers like Kilian Fischhuber and Daniel Woods. The documentary airs May 8 at 9 p.m. EDT on Outside TV.
