Lynn Hill shares her story as a pioneering woman in what was once a male-dominated sport of rock climbing. Her first free ascent of the Nose on El Capitan in 1993 in Yosemite Valley, California, is of the most famous rock climbs in the world, which remained un-repeated for over a decade. For the past 43 years, she has traveled all over the world, shaping the evolution of climbing as well as her own life.
