REEL ROCK: BREAK ON THROUGH
FILMMAKERS: Peter Mortimer, Matty Hong, Nick Rosen & Zachary Barr
DURATION: 26 minutes
The grade 5.15 in climbing is described as a number representing the unattainable, a ‘magical barrier’ similar to breaking the four-minute mile. At the start of 2017, only a few male climbers had achieved the grade and no women.
Enter an exceptionally driven 19-year-old, Margo Hayes. “When I sense others doubting what I can do, my determination triples," says Margo on her quest to smash through the barrier.
