Free Solo

The story of climber Alex Honnold’s attempt to climb 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park solo and without a rope. Jimmy Chin and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi (Meru) tell the story of this incredible athletic endeavor with stunning cinematography and fascinating context. Awe-inspiring. Recommended for aerobic base training or rehab work on the treadmill or indoor bike trainer, but it’ll make you sweat even if you watch it on the sofa.
