Climbers Joe Hanson, Phillip Wright, and Dominic Joyce are three friends from England who challenged themselves to climb the Dawn Wall back in 2016. They learned a lot on this trip, but a few lessons stood out: less work, more dirt, and a little suffering are all key ingredients to happiness. And that's what this film, Type II Fun, is really all about. Find more from Joyce on his website.
