About the movie

8.1/10 100/100

In the middle of Yosemite National Park towers El Capitan, a huge block of granite whose smoothest side, the Dawn Wall, is said to be the most difficult rock climb in the world. Tommy Caldwell didn’t see inhospitable terrain, but rather a puzzle almost a kilometer tall. In The Dawn Wall, we follow him and Kevin Jorgeson in their historic ascent to the summit.

What a fantastic documentary! Breathtaking scenery but most importantly, EXCELLENT storytelling that’s really easy to follow and build up the character gallery as the story progresses. I think I like this one more than Free Solo because it has a better morale and a really awesome surprise towards the end! Also prefer that you are not afraid of him falling off the cliff and into death every single minute 😬

Beautiful documentary about the challenge of ascending The Cap. If you liked Free Solo, you will like this.

I loved this. Just as amazing as free solo, but much more of a story and journey that goes along with it.

Really like free solo - with ropes this time but no less dramatic. Beautiful views and insight into climbing life, living on ledges. Great recommendation from @NaomiNickerson. Really recommend!!
