Alex Honnold is a ‘Free Solo’ climber, meaning he climbs alone and without any ropes, harnesses or equipment. Here, he prepares to solo El Capitan: a sheer, 3200-foot rock face.
It’s the most impressive wall on the planet, and the centre of the rock-climbing universe. Alex’s lifelong dream is to climb it without a rope, but it goes without saying that something so dangerous is going to take a lot of preparation.
Experience Alex’s attempt to achieve the unbelievable in ‘Free Solo’, a critically-acclaimed documentary from the directors of ‘Meru’.
