“First Ascent” is an awesome short film following Hill and Bennett as they climb the classic route in Eldorado Canyon, Colorado.

Director Bob Carmichael explains the structure of the film as follows: “It is not in chronological sequence but the idea was to create tension in the short film so we altered the pitches for those familiar with the Naked Edge. These two women became the first all women team to climb The Naked Edge.”
