Schmidt's Tunnel: The Pinnacle of Pointless Climbing

The Traverse traces California poet Brian Laidlaw as he boulders through Burro Schmidt's Tunnel in the Mojave Desert. Burro Schmidt dug this tunnel for 33 years, single-handedly, to reach the other side of an isolated mountain. This film examines what kind of value climbing and Schmidt's Tunnel bring to society. Follow Pranalens on Facebook here and Instagram here.
