"Alex Honnold's Free Solo climb should be celebrated as one of the great athletic feats of any kind, ever." - New York Times

"Scary and exhilarating." - Glenn Kenny, rogerebert.com

"Free Solo would be an exceptional piece of filmmaking if it confined itself to the physical poetry of Mr. Honnold's achievements. But it gets at his inner life, too, and goes a long way toward answering the unspoken question of what makes - or allows - him to do what he does." - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi (Meru) and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin comes National Geographic Documentary Film's Free Solo, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of the free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climb the face of the world's most famous rock...the 3,000ft El Capitan in Yosemite National Park...without a rope.

Celebrated as one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, Honnold's climb set the ultimate standard: perfection or death. Succeeding in this challenge, Honnold enters his story in the annals of human achievement. Free Solo is both an edge-of-your-seat thriller and an inspiring portrait of an athlete who exceeded our current understanding of human physical and mental potential. The result is a triumph of the human spirit.
