    Die "Gimp Monkeys" waren auf der Banff-Premiere in München zu Gast. Vorher gaben sie uns ein Interview in der Kletterhalle Gilching. Online-Tickets buchbar unter: http://www.banff-tour.de In Summe haben die Gimp Monkeys Craig DeMartino, Jarem Frye und Pete Davis drei Köpfe, vier Arme und fünf Beine. Für die drei behinderten Kletterer ist das kein Grund ihren Sport an den Nagel zu hängen. Ganz im Gegenteil. Sie haben ein Ziel ins Auge gefasst, das selbst mit zwei Armen und Beinen eine Riesenherausforderung ist: die Big Wall El Capitan im Yosemite National Park. Ihr Film ist Teil der Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour.

      life story has chapters of epic twists and turns. Free Spirit. Photographer. Climber. Amputee. Gold Medalist. Father. Advocate.After a climbing accident in 2002 resulted in a lost leg, Craig chose to push beyond the past, beyond limits, and towards a life of fulfillment and adventure. As Craig says, “I measure the days by family time and the routes I do or boulders I roam around in and thrash my way up. I like the different ways my life unfolds, it is always changing and I think that’s a good thing.”As Craig circles the globe in pursuit of new extraordinary adventures, a high-performance timepiece is a must. The Casio ProTrek PRW2500 keeps Craig on course, measures altitude gain, and tracks changing weather patterns. Featuring solar power, 200M water resistance and quick one-touch triple sensor technology, the ProTrek PRW2500 is a powerful high-performance timepiece fit for adventurers, making it the perfect companion for Craig’s outdoor lifestyle.Being in the mountains a lot the ProTrek is an essential tool for me. From the barometer and compass to the altimeter, I use the watch to plan my trips and figure out when and where the conditions will be great for climbing. The Bearing Sensor allows me to find myself on a map so I can plot the best course to find the cliff I’m looking for. The weather in Colorado changes so fast, and the Barometric Pressure trends allow me to see what’s coming before it comes, allowing me to plan accordingly.

          We've reached the end. It's with mixed emotions that Bryan and I have decided that this will be the final episode of this experiment in grassroots storytelling. It's been an incredible adventure for us. The athletes left us inspired. The community reaction humbled us. Thank you. A few things I will never forget: Spending New Years Eve in a no name town on Vancouver island inside Jonaven's airstream. Rain pelted the aluminum. Watching the cable cam first take flight. The resulting look of glee on Matt's face. Sunset at the mouth of the Klamath. Realizing that I still have the same enthusiasm for traveling the American West as I did when I was 21. Watching the light fade from the top of Cheop's. I could go on and on. It has been a memorable experience. Thanks for watching.

              “The List is this ongoing process in my head,” says climber Craig DeMartino. Each season, his mind wanders over past climbs. They bubble to the surface and Craig makes it a point to go out and repeat them, but over the years a funny thing happened. The list became less about looking backward then as a means for looking forward. Craig climbs as hard if not harder than he did before his accident and amputation, so it would only make sense that he would add new, more challenging routes to The List. For all traditional climbers, El Capitan is always right near the top of every tick list.

                Craig DeMartino barely survived his 100 foot fall. After three months in the ER, critical care and rehabilitation centers, he was able to return home to his family and something that resembled his life before the accident. His frail body made living difficult and a rare nerve disorder brought on by the trauma only worsened the situation. Craig was faced with a decision. His right foot would never heal. He would never chase his kids across the backyard or climb again. But there was an option -- amputation. It was a risk, but it seemed no foot might be better than a bad foot. Craig thought long and hard. In an attempt to get his life back, Craig decided he would rather be an amputee than spend the rest of his life regretting.
