Free Solo

Oscar-winning documentary about the extreme climber Alex Honnold, who forced the 1000-meter-high wall at El Capitan in Free Solo without any security.
Alex Honnold’s performance was described as “The Moon Landing of Free Solo Climbing,” a “milestone in climbing history.” On June 3, 2017, the extreme climber managed to conquer the legendary El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. The 1000-meter-high steep wall is a nightmare even for climbers who rely on technical fuses. That Honnold would succeed in mastering the route freeriders without any backup in 3 hours and 56 minutes is a sensation.
How do you overcome such a milestone? How do you deal with fear? The smallest mistake could have cost Honnold his life. The documentation of the couple Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi immersed in the mind of the climbing star, shows his tireless, weeks of preparation, in which Honnold learned to memorize the way, to visualize, before he actually went. For the spectacular pictures but you should be free from giddiness.
Already in 2018, the film “Through the Wall” showed a spectacular ascent of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. The Oscar-nominated documentary “Free Solo” now tops even this testimony of sporting ambition. Filmmakers Jimmy Chin (“Meru”) and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi accompany Alex Honnold in his preparation for the Free Solo at El Capitan and capture his alpine masterpiece in incredible images.
When climbing El Capitan, Alex Honnold risked his life. Without any protection, he climbed the legendary wall of the mountain. The movie does not just show the spectacular event. The fact that free-solo climbing repeatedly leads to fatal accidents is also a topic of discussion. As Alex Honnold is mentally prepared for the ascent – apart from the unique pictures – the real sensation.
