"Gripped" - The Only Way Down Is Up

"Gripped" is the new rock climbing survival story, directed by Benjamin Galland, starring Natalie Duran, Jacki Florine and Megan Hensley:

"Bret takes a huge fall and suffers a serious head injury and torn shoulder.

"With no way to retreat off the cliff, Rose is forced to take the lead and finish the 1000 ft of climbing to the summit. However, Rose has very little experience with high alpine traditional climbing and when night falls and they are forced to bivouac on the side of the cliff. 

After a long night on the ledge and a potential storm approaching, it's do or die...climb or die..."
