Free Solo Climbing Documentary

By: Karen McPherson, Estes Park Nonprofit Resource Center

Where are the aspiring and professional rock climbers? Calling all adventurists, athletes, the curious “how could they possibly do it?” to watch the story of how one man trains for and conquers the famous El Capitain. This is an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential.
