When the head of the New York City climbing community, Nancy Estrada, was asked what she would say to anyone who wants to make a movie based on her climbing career, her answer was straightforward: “Get in touch with me.”
In fact, Estradas climbing career has taken her to many corners of the world, where she’s made a living doing what she loves.
In a world where women are increasingly being excluded from the industry, and many of the industry’s most successful climbers are women, EStradas is determined to get back into the game.
Her passion for climbing and her love of making movies has allowed her to open doors for others, but Estrados passion is much more than the climbing.
“I am very, very passionate about women,” Estradadas told Business Insider.
“I love climbing and climbing is a great way to make money.”
As she gets ready to film the upcoming movie adaptation of her book “A Woman of the North,” EStrada said she’s also excited to be putting her work behind her to make sure she’s remembered.
“I think women are very much part of the climbing community and we are still trying to figure out what the future of climbing looks like, and I’m just so excited to tell the story of the women that were in the business, and the way they were able to make their lives work,” she said.
“It’s such a hard story to tell, and it’s one of the few stories that’s truly true and real.”
In a world of female climbers being excluded and underrepresented in the climbing world, Ebrada has been trying to get women in the industry involved since she was in her teens.
Her book “Rescuing a Girl” was published in 2011 and has since sold more than 5 million copies, and her most recent film, “Rising,” was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Director.
Estradas book, “A Women of the South,” was released last year.
She says that if there is ever a time that women need to get involved in climbing, it’s now.
The film is set in the 1970s in the US and features several female climbers, including a female climber named Sherry O’Brien.
The film is loosely based on the book “Women of the West,” a history of climbing published in 1979 by author and journalist Nancy Ebradas.
Estrada said the idea for “A woman of the north” came when she was looking at photos of the US climbing scene, which included climbing women.
“As a young woman, I was intrigued by climbing and had heard so many stories about the women climbing, and all of the hard work and dedication they put into their sport, and yet I couldn’t find any women of color climbing in my own backyard,” she told BusinessInsider.
So, EBradas decided to do something about it.
“When I was growing up, I always wanted to climb, so I had a pretty good sense of who these women were,” EBrada said.
“Then I started thinking about how much of it I could tell about them in a way that they would have been able to relate to and be a part of.”
In “A Female of the Mountains,” Ebrados focuses on climbing history in the United States, focusing on the first American women, the women who made it big, like Eliza Plumb, Maria Trigg, and Mary Leland.
A Woman Of The North” follows the rise of the first female climbers and the rise and fall of the Mountaineering Club.
In the film, EBRadas interviews the founding members of the Club and the women in their lives.
There are also interviews with members of other climbing organizations including the San Francisco Climbing Club and New York’s North Face, among others.”
It’s not just me, it doesn’t just have to be me.””
