Teenage sport climbers Tori Allen and Scott Cory attempt to become the youngest people to climb Yosemite's El Capitan. However, they've never been more than 100' off the ground. How they'll respond to a multi-day adventure up a 3,000 foot wall is anybody's guess. With very little planning, they embark on a 5-day adventure into history.Written by
I saw this program at the Boulder Adventure Film Festival recently and, man, I loved it. It's a documentary about a couple kids trying to climb Yosemite Valley's El Capitan -- with the help of several grown-ups and plenty of ropes and safety gear, of course.
Rock climbing is a great sport but no one seems interested in investigating the heart and soul of it. (No offense to Sly Stallone or Clint Eastwood.) It's about time someone told an exciting, human story like this.
Purely from an aesthetic POV, it's a fun movie to watch. Stylish without being to OTT. A great movie for kids to see what they can accomplish if they just try.
I hope it ends up on the Discovery Channel or at my local video shop!
