Touchstone Climbing out of California is working on a new series called Behind The Set which profiles the route setters who make your climbs possible. Route setting is done behind the scenes, during the off hours, and most folks have no idea whose route they're climbing. This episode follows Holland Pettingill, who is pioneering what it means to be a female route setter at her local gym.
