A global tour to inspire

“A global tour to inspire people through rock climbing and raise $10,000 a month for twelve different non-profit organizations. 6 months deep into travel, the Lead Now team finds a new rhythm in India during the month of December. With 5am daily wakeup calls to work India’s hardest sport climb before sunrise, Paige Claassen and 2 of India’s strongest climbers – Tuhin Satarkar and Sandeep Kumar Maity – navigate not only heat but the cultural barriers of a country deeply rooted in tradition. In a culture where women are expected to keep the home, dress conservatively, and live under the guidance of men, a woman climbing Ganesh (5.14a/8b+) is an unexpected event. Follow the Lead Now team deeper into the struggles of women in India as Ruchira Gupta, Emmy winning founder of Apne Aap Women Worldwide, describes her work to end sex trafficking and forced prostitution in India, and encourage the hope, empowerment, and shared courage of women around the world.”
