A gripping adventure into the world of cutting edge rock and ice climbing, ON SIGHT documents what is possible with a ground up, no pre-practice approach to climbing, resulting in raw, compelling and often frightening situations. Pushing personal limits, climbers must be willing to take a 30 foot fall for the ultimate on sight ascent.

In the age of indoor gym climbing and pre-practiced ascents, On Sight gets back to the basics of climbing, the simple game of getting to the top using only your strength, skill and guts!
