Jesse Dufton had only 20 percent of normal vision when he was born. He was diagnosed with inherited genetic retinal disease at age 4, and was no longer able to read when he turned 20. For 30 years old Jesse Dufton, sight is nothing more than an insignificant sense among others controlling his body, but that can’t be the reason for him to stop climbing. After disabled sports climbing, his fight has begun to challenge the Old Man of Hoy, the iconic Scottish traditional climbing experience. This documentary gives a chance to think about how Paraclimbing started in the UK and is now spreading worldwide. (LEE Young-jun)
