Here is the trailer.



"In January, 2015, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb The Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California. The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention. But for Tommy Caldwell, The Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, Caldwell was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing The Dawn Wall."

I watched this movie last night. Thoroughly enjoyed it, good movie. I remember when they conquered the Dawn Wall. It was big news. I did not know how many years they had been climbing the wall scouting routes nor did I realize Tommy Caldwell was one of the climbers I heard on the news who had been taken hostage. His mom and dad were so calm watching him climb. Kevin's mom was a bit more tense. Kevin did an amazing job climbing. It was a good story about how they became a team. Thanks again Wagga. Need good movies to watch during COVID19. Just bought a book suggested by Alan Arnett. I miss following Everest climbs this year. Alan has a virtual climb for charity on his website www.alanarnett.com
