Karen Darke’s adventurous life story in a Giant Screen 3d Film takes us from the brink of death when she fell while free-climbing in Scotland to hand-cycling the heights of the Himalayas...to the rusty knife of a Brazilian spirit surgeon. It is a story not just of climbing and courage, but one of inner journeying and spirituality too.


Out of Karen's wound comes a strength to embrace the challenge and transform it into  an opportunity to learn and grow from.


It tells the story of the biggest challenges she'd ever faced - a month long journey sit-skiing 600km across the wilderness of the Greenland Ice Cap, with only her arms as her engine. With minus 40 degree conditions and strong winds up to 200 kilometers per hour, it was a journey that was to lead to the biggest mental and physical challenge that she could have ever anticipated, returning to the rock and a week long climb suspended on the awesome kilometer-high overhanging face of El Capitan.


Karen's captivating story shines a unique bright light on the meaning of challenge, and on the limitless capabilities of the human spirit, and is a story well told in both its intimate and adventurous aspects in her two best selling books “If You Fall” and “Boundless” on which the screenplay of this feature film and television series are based.


Karen participated in the 2012 London Olympics in the sport of hand-cycling as a member of the British Cycling Team. In the time trial she won a silver medal. In the road race, courting controversy, she and her team-mate attempted to share the bronze medal by crossing the line hand in hand. She is now training again with the British Cycling Team for the Rio 2016 Paralympics.
