Do not wait for home video! FREE SOLO must be seen on a theater-sized screen, or you will rob yourself of the full effect.
This is the best documentary I’ve ever seen.
On June 3, 2017, Alex Honnold climbed El Capitan in Yosemite National Park without ropes or any safety gear. The only known person in history to do so.
An unbelievable story and an unbelievable feat, right before your eyes with no script or special effects, and shot with breathtaking, heart-stopping cinematography.
Thanks to a film crew of highly skilled climbers, including director Jimmy Chin, we are able to come along on this journey of a lifetime.
FREE SOLO currently has a critics score of 99% on rottentomatoes.com and an audience score of 95%. The “Critic Consensus” on Rotten Tomatoes states:
“FREE SOLO depicts athletic feats that many viewers will find beyond reason – and grounds the attempts in passions that are all but universal.”
I was literally shaking during parts of this.
