Just watchedFree Solo, a NatGeo documentary about freeclimber Alex Honnold. One of the most spectacular documentaries I’ve seen, with some great camera work. Honnold attempts to solo climb El Capitan in Yosemite without ropes or equipment. Pretty darn crazy stuff. I could feel my vertigo kicking in at several points in the movie. Excellent movie, highly recommended!


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Bought it when it was released and have found myself stopping it more then watching it. Vertigo is just to easy in 4k on a 65" big screen.
Those guys filming him had balls. No drones at all.

watched it also, totally unbelievable to think he did that with no rope in under 4 hours!

Jim, I was suffering from the same thing, had to look away a few times.

Yeah, I actually had sweaty palms after watching it!
