Project dawn wall
United States / 2011 / 11'
Tommy Caldwell is a big wall specialist. He has dedicated the last decade of his life to opening up routes on El Capitan, in the Yosemite area, rewriting the history of climbing. For three seasons he has concentrated on his latest project – the impossible Dawn Wall. Tommy proceeds together with Kevin Jorgeson, a bouldering expert, until a storm of epic proportions prevents the two men from continuing, at least until next year.
Josh Lowell has been climbing and making movies about climbing almost as long as you've been watching them. Over the last 20 years Josh has climbed in exotic places all over the world but will always call his local crags of the East Coast, like the Shawangunks, home.
An expert climbing director, he has made several films about mountaineering. With Big UP Productions he has made numerous films since 1997, including “King Lines”, which competed at the 56th Trento Film Festival. In 2006, together with Peter Mortimer, he established the REEL ROCK Film Tour, with which he brings previews of the best climbing and adventure films to the attention of the public.
