This mother-and-son project documents the legal clash between Washoe Indians and Tahoe Basin climbers, many of whom the two know as friends.

In 2007, the tribe’s sacred concerns for Cave Rock in Nevada’s Lake Tahoe won out against a rock climbing group sponsored by giant corporations like Nike. That some climbers disrespectfully dubbed their routes “Cave Man” and “Bat Out of Hell” is just a hint of the furor that defined this fight. The stories shared by both sides will give you pause.
