There is climbing in Israel and it's nice!
This is my personal story of the Fuel sector in a crag called Gita, one of the two major crags in Israel.
I was glad to take part in developing and climbing most of the routes in the sector, if not all of them.....
The idea for the movie came to me when I realized most climbers are not familiar with the sector and its story.
I hope this movie came on time.

A short film documenting Jonathan Siegrist on the first ascent of Idaho's hardest route, "Algorithm" 5.14d (9a), on September 8th 2012.
"I could not fall. I think by the end I was screaming at every move - more nervous than tired - but definitely tired. I clipped the chains with swollen forearms and bleeding tips. 'Algorithm' 14d was born. Idaho's hardest pitch, and one of the proudest F.A.s of my career." - Jonathan Siegrist
"It was exactly what I was looking for - a route that would demand a new levels of dedication, physical strength, and mental fortitude from me. It was of course frustrating, ego-crushing, and difficult throughout, but in the end it was a dream come true. I named the route 'Le Reve', meaning 'The Dream' in French."
