Video: Paint It Black

The short video that I have shared below is an incredibly powerful look at the dedication and determination that climbers often bring to their projects. It features Ian Dory, who set out to climb a V15 route in Colorado known as Paint It Black. Little did he know that finishing that route would become his obsession, taking two years to complete. The film shows viewers his frustration along the way, and ultimately the satisfaction of having completed this difficult problem. Beautiful images and good storytelling are highlights of the clip.
