Summary This film tells the story of Bob Coomber, an intrepid adventurer who sets out to be the first wheelchair hiker to cross the famously steep and prolonged 11,845-foot Kearsarge Pass in the Sierra Nevada. For Bob in his wheelchair, this adventuring is fraught with danger. He must continually deal with altitude sickness and the threat of a diabetic coma, not to mention possible fatal or crippling falls in the steep terrain. Away from the Sierra, Bob is an advocate for the disabled in Northern Californa. He takes groups from the wheelchair-bound community as well as children and war veterans on local hikes, teaching about ecology, animal and plant life, and ways to navigate the wilderness.
