Starring Tommy Caldwell, Jimmy Chin, Alex Honnold
Belltable | Mon, 14th Jan | 8pm | €8
Professional climber Alex Honnold scales the world’s most vertiginous cliff faces without ropes, harness or any other safety equipment, using only his bare hands and a bag of chalk. Known as ‘free soloing’, the extreme sport, which has cost the lives of many, has propelled Alex to the status of a celebrity amongst the climbing community. This stunningly shot, vertigo-inducing documentary from renowned filmmaker Chai Vasarhelyi and photographer and mountaineer Jimmy Chin observes the idiosyncratic Honnold as he prepares to realise his seemingly-impossible lifelong dream of climbing the 3,200 sheer feet of rock that is El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. Film notes by David O Mahony.
