    Dina Khreino (2018)

    The world’s most elite group of mountain adventurers reflect on why they leave behind families, friends, and everyday comforts, to risk everything for a fleeting glimpse into the unknown. Director Dina Khreino interviewed world-class athletes, listening to what compels them to this uncertain search.

    Adaptive

    Taylor Zann (2019)

    Jim Ewing is a veteran rock climber and senior rope engineer at Sterling Rope, a prominent rock-climbing rope company. On Christmas Day in 2014, Jim fell over 50 feet to the ground in a climbing accident, a near-death experience that led to the subsequent below-the-knee amputation of his left leg. Before walking on a prosthetic, Jim was already climbing again, and before long, he began dreaming about his bucket list… In 2018, Jim joins Maureen Beck, a professional climber missing her left hand, to attempt the first all-adaptive ascent of the Lotus Flower Tower in Canada’s Cirque of the Unclimbables. Jim and Maureen hope to demonstrate that 'disabled' climbers are just differently –and equally–abled.

    Craig's reaction

    Cameron Maier (2018)

    In 2002, Craig DeMartino was climbing with a friend in Rocky Mountain National Park when a terrible miscommunication occurred; DeMartino fell nearly 100 feet onto the rocks below. He survived, but his injuries were devastating — ruptured lung, fractured spine, pulverized feet, among others — and the accident forever altered his life. He could have retreated into his injuries and given up on climbing. Instead, DeMartino, who had one leg amputated under the knee, got back into his harness. Today, he has climbed grades as hard as 5.13, led an all-disabled ascent of El Capitan and introduced scores of fellow disabled athletes to the joy of climbing.

    Stumped

    Cedar Wright (2017)

    Maureen Beck says: 'I don’t want to be known as just a one-armed climber, I just want to be a good climber. Maureen Beck may have been born missing her lower left arm, but that hasn’t stopped her from going hard. She takes whippers on 5.12 and crushes overhanging boulders, while shot-gunning beers. But she is not here to be your inspiration. 'People say... 'Look, a one-armed climber, now I have no excuses. I’m like, dude, you never had any excuses in the first place.' Maureen is here to crush the gnar — with one bloody stump helping her get to the top. A film by climber and filmmaker Cedar Wright and Taylor Keating, screened and distributed as part of the Reel Rock 12 series.
