Jeremy Collins and Mikey Schaefer had been planning a new route on Yosemite Valley’s Middle Cathedral when they learned of the deaths of their good friends and fellow climbers, Jonny Copp and Micah Dash. Collins said, “They showed us to never give up, to go light, to go bold, and always live with passion.” He and Schaefer climbed the route in their honor. “Border Country” was the title of Copps last poem entry in his journal. Collins based this film from his own journal art, and response to both the catastrophe and the beauty that restores in wild places.,
