Jeff Dufton was born with defective, deteriorating eyesight. By the age of 20 he can no longer read, ten years later he is almost blind. But Jeff has been an avid climber for as long as he can remember. He trains for World Cup competitions and leads on classic climbing routes. The more he loses his eyesight, the better he gets at climbing. He is always looking for a greater challenge. His goal is to be the first to lead-climb the Old Man of Hoy, a legendary rock needle off the coast of Scotland, “non-sight”. A documentary that is no longer just about climbing.
