Rocky Mountain National Park is home to a lifetime of rock climbing that usually takes place during the summer and fall months. However, for a very small and scrappy crew of climbers, “The Park”  is known as a winter climbing arena. I began documenting this story in 2009—it is a wild ride of climbers chasing down their limits while finding out just how much they can endure.
