Will Roe from The Times & Sunday Times - Who Killed CJ Davis? and Ben Williams from Rokkwood Audio return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Will’s choice The Dawn Wall. The Dawn Wall is a 2017 documentary about free climber Tommy Caldwell who, along with Kevin Jorgeson completed the first free climb of El Capitan in 2015. This was a 19 day climb and is considered one of the hardest climbs in history. The documentary is fairly standard in that we start with young Tommy in the Colorado Rockies learning to climb, then in a bizarre turn of events in 2000, Tommy and his then girlfriend Beth Rodden were captured in Kyrgyzstan by rebels. After returning from the traumatic kidnapping Tommy loses a finger in an accident and his marriage breaks down - it’s then he decides to take on El Capitan. Scores

The Dawn Wall is a story of commitment and determination - plus a lesson in pooping on a cliff face. Not recommended for anyone with a fear of heights! Recommendability for The Dawn Wall is pretty high, lower scores for repeat viewing and small screen (the documentary curse strikes again!) give an overall score of 3.60. What do you guys think?
