The scariest film ever to watch making Annabelle+Sadako+Kayako look like pre-schoolers.

He obviously doesn't know what "Tweaker" means... he thinks that means a weird kid... uh, no... it means a lowlife drug user.

60 mins of him and his girl sat in a van 5 mins of climbing.. not worth
THE cool guy (11 days ago)
Pretty much summarizes the experience he went through. Years of preparation and training for a couple hours of climbing.

And here I'm sometimes having trouble free climbing out of my bed
joenoseph (23 days ago)
it seems like none of these climbers have never practiced any kind of mindfulness or meditation before attempting these life-threatening feats. he compares himself to samurai, but appears to have have very little psychological or philosophical attachment to himself or others. there are people who suffer from mental illnesses who struggle with suicidal urges every day and manage to not kill themselves, but they're not having award-winning films made about their daily experiences...
THE cool guy (11 days ago)
Except he isn't suicidal. He does this because he wants to, because it's his passion. It's a movie about someone living a very intentional lifestyle, doing EXACTLY what he wants to do. That's not very common, and it's even more impressive because he accomplished one of the most impressive feats of athletics while doing so.

I love when his girlfriend is crying saying would he stop if their relationship was a priority and just calmly says, "this relationship isn't a priority". I had to stop the film I was laughing so hard. I think in pretty cruel but I'm not that heartless.

At 1:38 that climber with the camera is a real daredevil. I have been up El Capitan. Time to cook.

I watch this movie often. Many people fail in achieving their values in life because they haven't invested much real "skin in the game" and their passions get diluted as they live their ordinary risk-averse lives. When I start any business project now, or anything worth doing, I'm "all in" or I don't bother with it. It's a game-changer.

Alex most definitely has balls of steel.
mr. dotchetter (2 months ago)
Absolutely incredible. This is a feat beyond my own comprehension to big extent. Right now as I’m watching ‘The dawn wall’ where Tommy Caldwell climbs el cap during several DAYS and still that is after years of practice, planning and attempting routes.. And this guy free climbs it in mere hours. With meticulous, repetitive practice of course.. but it’s still just unreal. Can’t imagine the feeling of being on that wall, seeing expert climbers practice their way up el cap with ropes and falling, falling falling and retrying over and over. The smallest mistake, grab the notch on the rock just an 8th of an inch and it’s over. Unbelievable.
mr. dotchetter (1 month ago)
Ari Cyr very good point!
Ari Cyr (1 month ago)
It is an amazing achievement, but I think it's important to understand that The Dawn Wall is much more difficult than Freerider (the route that Honnold chose for his el cap free solo). They're both fantastic achievements, just not really comparable.

Just watched "Free Solo" on DVD. This stunning Academy Award winning documentary about Alex Honnold's free solo climb 3000 feet up El Capitan is absolutely amazing, gripping and awe-inspiring. His unflinching determination, grit and courage to overcome all fear is amazing and inspirational! No fear.

Livia (2 months ago)
Funny, but interesting thought here. I would like to see something like this, with this attitude, both about the potential negatives of this dangerous interest, and also the understanding part, of exploring. When it comes to the exploring of your own mind, with drugs. And I would never want to see that climbing like this would be illegal. Nor do I want to see experimenting with drugs to be that, as well!

Joe Pasco (2 months ago)
To much drama, not enough climbing. More time spent watching him in his bunk, working on a refrigerator, driving his van, tying his shoes, staring up the nostrils of everyone, than the actual climbing.
THE cool guy (11 days ago)
The climb itself only took a couple hours, and of that time most of it was easier crack climbing that's not very interesting to watch. The documentary was more about his journey and preparation for the climb, not ONLY the ascent.
