Truly breathtaking and nuts. The documentary frames the climb in a way that respects Honnold's achievement and almost makes this climb seem reasonable

Great footage, nerve wrecking as hell. Alex, the climber, is kind of irritating though.

Climber Alex Honnold’s underdog story and humble demeanour, mixed with stunning cinematography of the daunting El Capitan rock, set the scene for a nail biting, edge-of-your seat documentary that even non-climbers can enjoy.

I’d like to make this an 8.5; it was a well put together story but i selfishly wanted more beautiful rock shots. I’m generally a fan of Jimmy Chin.

Omg just watched this. SOOO good! Really tense, was on the edge of my seat. Beautiful outdoorsy scenes, makes me want to live in a van in Yosemite. His girlfriend is a total saint and the real hero of the documentary.

Sweet jesus - This story about this guy is AMAZING. He is absolutely awkward in his own particular way and fascinating with his strong determination at the same time. BONUS: If you’re not too much into a “climbing dude” the nature scenes are stunning!!
