synopsis

It's not a label. It's a state of mind. 


Jim Ewing is a veteran rock climber and senior rope engineer at Sterling Rope, a prominent rock climbing rope company. On Christmas Day in 2014, Jim fell over 50 feet to the ground in a climbing accident, a near-death experience that led to the subsequent below-the-knee amputation of his left leg. Before walking on a prosthetic, Jim was already climbing again, and before long, he began dreaming about his bucket list...


In 2018, Jim invited a professional climber missing her left hand, Maureen Beck, to accompany him in

attempting the first all-adaptive ascent of the über classic and deeply remote Lotus Flower Tower (5.10+) in Canada's Cirque of the Unclimbables. The route is on the list of North America's 50 classic climbs and the 2,000 foot granite face is coveted by climbers everywhere. In "Adaptive", Jim and Maureen hope to demonstrate that "disabled" climbers are just differently––and equally––abled.
