    The Dawn Wall

    Josh Lowell (2018)

    The definitive film on the climb that captured headlines and ignited imaginations worldwide. Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson ascend the hardest big wall of all time: a 19 day ascent of The Dawn Wall, on the 3,000 foot vertical face of El Capitan, in Yosemite National Park. The film travels deeper than the climb, digging into the history of the climbers and painting an intimate portrait of Caldwell's harrowing life experiences that culminated in a single-minded drive to complete this impossible climb. The Dawn Wall is a heart-warming and inspiring movie that celebrates perseverance, camaraderie, and the universal spirit of dreaming big, and never giving up.

    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.

    3 The hard way DVD

    3 The hard way

    Paul Nicholson (2004)

    The movie follows the comps from Hounds Ears in North Carolina, to the first ever comp at the then recently opened Little Rock City/Stone Fort near Chattanooga, and ends with the comp at Horse Pens 40 in Alabama.  This was the layout of the original series, with LRC before HP40, but since then the LRC comp has been moved to the last comp of the series and HP40 is now in the middle.  But the movie is more about the climbing than the fact that its a great documentary of the first Triple Crown.
