SYNOPSIS

After walking away from professional cycling to pursue climbing, Adrien Costa suffered a devastating accident that began his journey as an adaptive athlete. This film follows his path from recovery to the cutting edge of adaptive climbing, working his way up to an epic first ascent in Washington’s North Cascades with PNW legend Mark Allen. 

NOTE

[Jinna Lee, Programmer​]

The film follows Adrien Costa, a former pro cyclist turned climber who relentlessly pursues challenging goals post-accident, defying changes in his body. It's a tale of human triumph and transcendence, elevating it beyond a mere climbing film.
