Alex Honnold is widely regarded as the greatest free soloist ever, and the 3000ft high El Capitan in California is considered the most impressive rock wall on Earth.
Free Solo is a dizzying, nerve-wracking, and engrossing account of his 2017 attempt at what could be one of the most spectacular athletic achievements in history.
Far more than just an enthusiast’s diary, this Oscar-winning documentary brings us into his life and the lives of his friends and family. A privileged glimpse into the mentality of an athlete on the frontiers of human achievement.
