In 2016, West Virginia’s Summersville Lake hosted the first U.S. deep water soloing competition on real rock—PsicoRoc. While deep water soloing is banned at the lake, local climbers were able to work with officials to legalize it for just one day. The comp drew high level climbers from across the country, and inspired competitors to band together to take on the area’s hardest unfinished projects. The documentary includes a touching tribute to Hayden Kennedy and Inge Perkins, who won the women’s division.
