Frank Garcia shows where he lived when he was homeless and before he entered the recovery program at Seattle's Union Gospel Mission. Seattle's waterfront was his home and the bench he's sitting on, his bed.
Frank is one of seven men on the Union Gospel Mission climbing team we first met in the winter. He told us many times how determined he was to make the climb. But just two weeks before the climb in August, after almost eight months of training, Frank Garcia backed out from his commitment. He wasn't the only one.
