Colorado-native climber Craig DeMartino lost his right leg and seriously injured his spine when he fell 100ft from the Sundance Buttress in 2002. He survived this terrible experience to start over as the first physicallyimpaired climber to ascend the El Capitan Zodiac route in one day. Each day he must depend on pain killers but, as a climbing missionary who preaches endless possibilities, to his friends he’s a full-time climber with a great sense of humor. It is quite impressive to see the daily life he goes about with the warm support from his family, while the illustration of the fall and how it happened is portrayed expertly in the film.
