Many have gone over, but none have ever attempted to go up.

Dwayne Nolan of Ontario's Niagara region is a self-proclaimed thrill-seeker who, late last year, attempted to be the first man in history to ever ascend the mighty Horseshoe Falls using nothing more than a rope.

This Is That's Pat Kelly embedded himself into Dwayne's training camp for the six months leading up to this climb of a lifetime. The result was "Up the Falls" a radio documentary that puts the listener right alongside this ambitious adventure seeker.
