Alex Honnold is the best known, still living, free soloist - aka rock climber sans ropes.

It seems very rare that a non-mainstream athlete gets a mainstream movie. But Alex is a very rare person. He's at turns funny, warm and accessible...and then cold like he has a personality disorder - he admits as much himself.

The cinematography is breath-taking, Alex's abilities are surreal and the film does a nice job of exploring all the little tidbits about him I've heard over the years - an oddly functioning amygdala for one.

And lastly, they do a nice job showing just how hard it is to do what he does.

9/10

Reel Rock 7 has a pretty lengthy piece about him in it. Very good. Worth watching. Probably on Netflix, etc.

EXCELLENT movie. Catch it in the theater if you can.
