Free solo is when you climb a rock with no ropes and no gear - just shoes and a bag of chalk. Here, Alex Honnold is in the process of making history as he free solos up the 3,200-ft-high El Capitan in California’s Yosemite National Park.

FREE SOLO

  • Direction: Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin
  • Actors: Alex Honnold, Sanni McCandless
  • Rating: 4 / 5

This is one of the most thrilling feature films in recent memory. Free Solo is also, interestingly, a National Geographic-produced documentary.

Its subject is the legendary rock climber Alex Honnold. In June 2017, Honnold became the first person to scale the world’s most famous granite monolith: the 3,200-ft-high El Capitan in California’s Yosemite National Park. And he did it free solo — with just shoes and a chalk bag; no ropes, no harnesses; no other protective gear.
