WALL RATS
Featuring: TORI ALLEN, SCOTT CORY, HANS FLORINE & LYNN HILL
Directed by: STEVE EDWARDS
Produced by: HANS FLORINE

Tori Allen, 13, and Scott Cory, 11, are sport climbers who’ve excelled at international competitions. Speed climber Hans Florine thinks that their small stature might allow them, as a team, to make the coveted second free ascent of the Nose, a famous line shooting straight up Yosemite Valley’s El Capitan.

However, neither Allen or Cory have much outdoor climbing experience or have ever been more than 100′ off the ground. How they’ll respond to a multi-day adventure up a 3,000 foot wall is anybody’s guess, not to mention no one that young has ever been up El Capitan. With very little planning, they embark on a 5-day adventure into history.
