FREE SOLO: Now Screening in Australia and New Zealand

Alex Honnold, Photo National Geographic

Alex Honnold's free solo of El Cap in Yosemite is being heralded by many as one of the greatest athletic feats of all time. Directed by Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, the film was shot over two years while following Alex during his meticulous preparation and final climb. We’re delighted to announce that Free Solo will be screening nationwide this month, and we are proud to be the presenting partners alongside Black Diamond. 


LIVE BEYOND FEAR

From award-winning documentary filmmaker E. Chai Vasarhelyi and world-renowned photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin, the directors of “MERU,” comes FREE SOLO, a stunning, intimate and unflinching portrait of free soloist climber Alex Honnold, as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream: climbing the face of the world’s most famous rock - the 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite National Park, without a rope. 

Much more than a climbing film, Free Solo is about life, love, dreaming big and facing your fears. Watch the trailer below and find a screening near you.
