Gods among men. I keep returning to this film for inspiration, and a reminder of those who broke the the trail before us. I can’t imagine having the audacity to climb the big walls of Yosemite back when the tools and protective equipment was so crude. Though part of me longs to have lived back when those climbs were still unknown wilderness to be explored. To have lived at Camp 4…
I like how the filmmakers managed to weave in the context of what was happening in the world that informed and shaped each of the climbing eras.
