Flyp Climbing Gym
Flyp was heavily damaged in the massive explosion that hit Beirut, Lebanon on the 4th of August 2020. It was a second home to a large part of Lebanon’s eclectic and vibrant climbing community where we found stability in a country fraught with political and economical unrest. For the past year people living here have been through a lot; for us climbing has been our refuge, our escape, and most of all a way for us to stay sane.
Sam Elias made this limited addition print (shown right) to raise funds for the Lebanese Red Cross and Impact Lebanon. He called it Cedrus Libani (or the cedar of Lebanon) because the cedar is the national emblem of Lebanon and is widely used as an ornamental tree in parks and gardens.
