dZi Foundation and Sherbino present Kelly Cordes: The Stories We Tell

A climber’s odyssey through passion, belief, and truth.

As an undersized kid who wanted to be a cowboy, Kelly Cordes never dreamed that the mountains would define his life. But he stumbled upon an obsession that took him to places of unimaginable beauty, infused his world with meaning, and forced an endless confrontation with failure. His experiences in climbing and in life intersected with a larger journey as he sought to uncover the truth in his award-winning book The Tower: A Chronicle of Climbing and Controversy on Cerro Torre.
