Thunder Mountain: A Life Changing Story presented by Malcolm Daly.
On May 21, 1999 Malcolm Daly and Jim Donini were attempting what they thought was a first ascent of a new route on Thunder Mountain in Alaska. Twenty-five-hundred feet up the route, on the last of the technical moves Daly took a 200’ fall, shattering his legs, starting a new chapter in his life. Injuries resulting from the fall included frostbite and shattered legs ultimately resulting in an amputation of his foot. This is the story about the climb and the accident and, more importantly, about the physical and mental challenges that have faced Malcolm since.
