Professional climber Marcus Garcia travels from his home in southwest Colorado’s San Juan Mountains to the limestone cliffs and spires of of El Potrero Chico in northern Mexico to revisit his mentor’s final climb. In an emotional and powerful act of closure, he reflects on the accident that took him a decade to talk about-and climbs the route that took his mentor’s life.
