A FILM BY BIG UP PRODUCTIONS
Big UP's Dosage series documents climbing's state-of-the-art, capturing the spirit of the sport, and some of its most spectacular moments. Volume V raises the bar with the biggest lineup ever of the world's best climbers, including: Chris Sharma, Dave Graham, Beth Rodden, Tommy Caldwell, Dani Andrada, Patxi Usobiaga, Michael Fuselier, Daniel Woods, Paul Robinson, Daila Ojeda, Ty Landman, Jason Kehl, and many more.
Beth Rodden climbs The Phoenix (5.13a), Cosmic Debris (5.13b), Peace (5.13c/d), and Book of Hate (5.13d), in Yosemite Valley, CA.
