    Immovable Mountain

    “Wampler’s Ascent” is a documentary about Wampler’s attempt to become the first person with a disability to climb El Capitan, a mountain that spans the height of two Empire State buildings, and a feat accomplished by only 50 percent of the climbers who attempt it. Wampler who has severe cerebral palsy and uses a power chair can do only two things with his left arm: push and pull. And those two motions are all he needs to pull himself up the mountain.
