Documentary / Historical
Short version of Benedictus, the story of Tom Callagan’s grand adventure on the 'Big Wall' section of Cannon Cliff in New Hampshire. Using an old aid climbing route as a starting point, Tom’s goal is to forge a new free climb to the top of the cliff. This turns out to take seven years, but a sense of humor helps keep things in perspective as partners drop out, injuries crop up, weather won’t cooperate and bad luck just happens.
