Synopsis:
From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, the directors of 'Meru', comes 'Free Solo' a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world's most famous rock...the 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park...without a rope. Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold's climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge places his story in the annals of human achievement.
'Free Solo' is an edge-of-your seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who challenges both his body and his beliefs on a quest to triumph over the impossible, revealing the personal toll of excellence. The result is a triumph of the human spirit that represents what The New York Times calls "a miraculous opportunity for the rest of us to experience the human sublime".

Amazing film documentary - Free Solo review by sw

Im not into rock climbing or any sports and still found this a great watch.

Its made really well. Very clever, similar to a film with Lots of really tense parts. Sitting on edge of seat moments.

Interesting to see how a relationship works with this type of living on the edge job/sport.

You watch it in dispalef that someone can or would do this.

Ill recommend it to any and everyone!
