Based on our popular First Ascent Series episode Alone on the Wall, we shot and directed the climbing scenes for this entertaining romp up Yosemite's walls with super-climber Alex Honnold.  Hosted by the charismatic Lara Logan, this episode had over 20 million viewers, including the legions who watched it on-line after its premier.   Here is a peek behind the scenes.

National Geographic Channel First Ascent

First Ascent Series: Released 2010

Sender Films is very pleased to announce our new National Geographic International television series, First Ascent. Based on our popular film, the six part series will bring viewers around the world with top climbers and crazy characters in the never-ending quests for new routes. It has been our long-held goal to present the dirt-bag heroes of the climbing world to a broader global audience, and we are very psyched to be producing what we think is the first-ever series dedicated to rock climbing culture.
