Great Video from Graham Zimmerman. A story of injury and recovery in the mountains.
In June of 2011 I was crushed by falling ice while climbing in New Zealand.
14 months later in August of 2012 I returned to the big mountains with good friends Scott Bennett, Blake Herrington and Forest Woodward. We headed to the gorgeous Waddington Range of British Columbia where we found near perfect weather and amazing rock walls.
This film attempts to portray the frustration of that injury and the joy of returning to the mountains.
