Nell became pregnant in her mid twenties, and took a break from climbing. Her son was born with a rare genetic syndrome, and motherhood became a series of specialist appointments, therapy sessions, and WTF moments. Five years, and another baby later, Nell stuffed her mama feet back into climbing shoes. It was a pivotal moment.


Climbing seemed like a wonder drug for the challenges of motherhood, and Nell went on a mission to find other climb mamas. What she found was a tribe of amazing women. Each with their own story, struggles, limitations, fears.... and every single one had been empowered by climbing.


Join a group of mothers as they adventure through some of Australia’s most stunning natural landscapes. Infused with light hearted stoke, dizzying heights, and childish hilarity. These adventure women explore the realities, challenges, and whys of being a mum gone climbing.


FREE access to documentary in celebration of Mothers Day 2024 until 22nd May.


The film is now available worldwide through Vimeo on demand, and in the UK through Amazon VOD.


The Mum's Gone Climbing documentary premiered in Australia and New Zealand September 2021 as part of the Women's Adventure Film Tour. The tour screened around the UK during March and April 2022.
