Director Statement

So many climbing films focus on the objective, be it a summit, first ascent or some hard overhanging sport climb. The intention behind this film was to go beyond the objective. Instead focusing on the personality of a man who embodies a spirit of togetherness and passionately emits a musical state of being.
