The film shows the dedication needed to develop routes in the desert and Mason has spent years searching the Canyons of Utah for new routes.

Yep - kind of symptomatic for the feel of the whole film. I'd quite honestly have been better entertained (and informed) by something about some Scottish Severe classic in the rain.
