This film inspires all who have had an accident and know how difficult it is to come back. Alyse Dietel fell off a cliff and shattered her body off a cliff in Flagstaff, AZ. The doctors told her she would probably never walk again, this included her passion, rock climbing. Her broken body was a vessel of constant pain but with a strong mind and her art to keep company, she pushed back the wheel chair and now is climbing harder than ever. Alyse is now an inspiration and a force to be recon with. She just was on the cover of Rock and Ice Magazine, achieved pro sponsorships and climbs 5.13 trad. A true inspiration.
