‘Night Climbing’ is a series by photographer Neal Grundy that documents a variety of popular climbing routes found in the UK. The images have been produced at night using torches to contrast natural textures of sandstone with man-made forms and movement created through climbing traffic and erosion.

The images are exposed as Neal climbs a particular ‘line’ or route whilst wearing a head torch. This illuminates the route and traces the movements of the ascending climber resulting in a striking juxtaposition between natural forms and artificial light. Areas of concentrated light indicate the more difficult ‘crux’ moves of the routes climbed, which may have taken the climber longer to complete. Enjoy!
