In 2002, Craig DeMartino's life should have ended. Craig took a 100-foot ground fall after a miscommunication with his climbing partner. The accident left Craig in a wheelchair and a slew of medical problems. Thankful to be alive, Craig still struggled to redefine himself after the accident. His lifestyle had changed forever. He struggled to play with his kids. The outdoors were no longer a part of his life. After being diagnosed with a neurological condition, Craig reached a turning point. He could amputate his slow-healing foot to stem his nerve condition and gamble that he could get his life back or he could stick with the obvious outcome -- stay in a wheelchair and grapple with pain for the rest of his life.

Tall and proud, The Method is one of Squamish's most difficult boulder problems. It's incredible how 12 feet of stone can define a season. But the conditions can be difficult-- exposed to the sun, the micro crimps and delicate foot smears are next to impossible. It's a finicky creature.
