The Dawn Wall


Thursday, May 2, 2019
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Tommy Caldwell isn’t just any rock climber. Having endured more than his share of disasters, he focused his considerable energy and skill on doing what seemed impossible: free-climbing the Dawn Wall, a 3000-foot expanse of granite in Yosemite National Park that had never been climbed. He and his partner, Kevin Jorgeson, spent six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route, blurring the line between dedication and obsession. And in January 2015, with the world watching, Caldwell was faced with a moment of truth. Thrilling and profound, this is a deeply moving exploration of one man’s psyche and relationship to nature.
