Summary This documentary follows Bob Coomber, an outdoor adventurer who sets out to be the first wheelchair hiker to cross the challenging 11,845 foot Kearsarge Pass in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range. For Bob in his wheelchair, this adventure is fraught with danger. He must deal continually with altitude sickness and the threat of diabetic coma, not to mention possible fatal or crippling falls in the steep terrain. The path is often blocked with shattered granite, and Bob must turn his wheelchair backward in order to push uphill using only his arms. We gain an intimate, foot-by-foot familiarity with Bob’s herculean effort and with some of the most perilous sections of the famous trail. “*An engaging documentary, about cherishing the great outdoors — and getting the most out of your life.*" - David Lewis, ***San Francisco Chronicle***
