Loved the movie from start to finish. It was great how they wove in the back stories. Sitting in the meadow watching the climbers on El Cap has always been one of my favorite things to do in Yosemite. After seeing this movie it will make it even more special to do.

Film was not compatible with projection equipment in Hooksett, NH. Film was well made, but I drove over an hour to this theater to see a crappy quality projection. Big screen would have been nice, but I have better screen resolution on my iPad. Test your equipment before you sell tickets!

Beautifully inspiring! How it highlights not only the most ambitious of climbs and overcoming adversity, but also life and relationships really makes this hit on many levels. Very well done and an incredible story!

Gahhhh. I left feeling like Tommy and Kevin were amazing people and climbers. And so much more than a climbing movie!! Saw it twice in one week and will be purchasing the film when it gets released.

Make sure to stay after the credits there is another 20+ minutes of action. My husband climbed of few of the routes in his younger days that are shown in this film. I loved getting a better understanding of what he did and of course he loved it. We were both spellbound the entire film.

So much more than a climbing story! I laughed, I cried, was on the edge of my seat (even though I knew the ending!). So many emotions, so many ups and downs, so inspirational. The reminder that life is often more about the pursuit of the goal than the accomplishment itself. A definite must see for anyone, not just for climbing fans for sure!

Stuffed with drama, both climbing-related and not.

It's the camerawork by director of photography Brett Lowell and cinematographer Corey Rich (along with many other contributors) that impresses the most here. Close-ups show just how precise and physically challenging the climbers' moves are.

While The Dawn Wall brings you up close to the miraculous feat of Caldwell and Jorgeson, the backstory (particularly of Caldwell) is just as amazing.
