Climbing Without A Rope

Derek Hersey came to the States from England and fell in love with the rocks of Colorado. The sport of free-solo climbing is one that draws gasps from anyone who witnesses it.  The 60 minutes story on Alex Honnold brought it to the attention of a much larger audience; but Derek Hersey had no interest in climbing for fame.  In this documentary, footage collected over his decade of climbing is strung together to reveal the character of a man who was driven by a passion to live free—-and high up in the air.
