Siebe Vanhee is used to achieving his goals. He graduated in the Social Work field, but followed his passion and became a professional big wall climber. As an athlete he mastered the art of balance, but he felt his own life was missing it; he wanted to give something back. This search led Siebe to learn of Escalando Fronteras, a Mexican ONG that uses climbing as a means to help vulnerable youngsters. And now after years of dreaming together, Siebe is returning to Monterrey, to team up with local climber Choco and “offer him a really cool, intense, out of comfort, big wall experience.” But the climb turns out to be more complex than that.
