The chronicle of a man’s attempt to be the first person to scale a notorious cliff wall without ropes or safety gear.

Alex Honnold is one of the most accomplished rock climbers ever. This riveting film follows him as he seeks to be the first climber to ascend free solo – without safety ropes – the 3000-foot cliff of El Capitan in California’s Yosemite Park. He also has to navigate the concerns of loved ones over this life-risking pursuit. Winner of the Toronto International Film Festival’s People’s Choice Documentary Award, this film delivers suspense like no other.
