In the summer of 2014 Dave MacLeod set his sights on opening a hard new route on Cima Ovest in the Italian Dolomites. A bold objective for anyone at any time. For Dave though, this project brought with it some of the greatest challenges he has ever faced.

Over 4 weeks in the Dolomites, consistently bad weather left just a handful of days where it was possible to get on the wall at all. But these precious few chances to make progress were compounded by the backdrop of a much more personal challenge. A series of injury problems had left Dave unsure of not only his ability to climb the route, but also questioning his future as an elite climber.

Despite the clouds hanging over him, Dave persevered and by applying his trademark total commitment and was able to push beyond what seemed possible and go on to shatter his personal expectations.

    as a climber who has torn all the ligaments and tendons in my ankle and being told that I would never climb again, but i recovered. Then, just as I was getting back up to peak, taking a bad fall skiing and tearing my acl and meniscus…this is a really awesome and inspiring thing to see. Gives hope
