Synopsis: Heroism takes many forms, has many faces. This valiant effort took 20,000 pull-ups climbing for 6 days and sleeping on the side of the mountain for 5 nights. Wampler is a husband, father… and has a severe form of Cerebral Palsy. In a story sure to rouse compassion, this athlete, who has the complete use of one limb, his right arm, and uses an electric wheelchair to get around, overcomes panic and terror using his steel will, guts and grit to show the power of the human force. This is a story of tenderness, warmth and the love of family that has the toughest among us encouraged by the expanse of human measure and reach. This is a feel-good story, which elicits delight and angst, dread and strength of character. It will leave the viewer moved, encouraged and optimistic, energized and heartened.
