Why not? Eleonora Delnevo attempts Zodiac on El Capitan in 2016
The film Why not? documenting the attempt by Eleonora Delnevo to climb Zodiac on El Capitan in Yosemite in 2016 with Diego Pezzoli, Angelo Angelilli and Franco Perlotto.
“Shall we try to climb a big wall again?” Diego Pezzoli asks Eleonora Delnevo. “Why not?” replies Eleonora. The year is 2016, the two Italians have just failed to repeat Zodiac on El Capitan in Yosemite with Angelo Angelilli and Franco Perlotto and obviously they don’t know that they’ll succeed in autumn 2018 with Mauro Gibellini and Antonio Pozzi.
This touching documentary retraces not only the difficult first attempt, but also some fundamental stages in the life of Eleonora who after a climbing accident in 2015 became paralysed from the waist down.
