We are really looking forward to the release of Alex Honnold documentary of his free solo climb of El Capitan.

Watch this Alex Honnold talk about this now.

We were full of wow and will definitely going to see FREE SOLO when it comes to UK cinemas later this year.

This video is illuminating for any climbers.  It is interesting and entertaining as Alex Honnold describes the events leading up to his attempt, the preparation and how he rehearsed the 3000 moves, and then talks through the actual ascent.

We loved watching this, it’s so very very good stuff.  You’ll hear about the ultimate control of fear from an incredible, strong and talented climber.

There is no doubt free soloing El Cap (and surviving) will go down in climbing history, even without this documentary in cinemas worldwide.

Alex Honnold says people always say to him “That is rad”.  What do you think?
