Darkest Before Dawn Poster Web


Peek into the world of Belgian climber Siebe Vanhee’s authentic, raw process of his first season climbing on Yosemite’s hardest big wall. The infamous Dawn Wall proves to be a challenge in more ways than one. Darkest Before Dawn combines genuine storytelling with a cinematic approach bringing together a story beyond just the climbing.
