Documenting Alex Honnold free soloing El Capitan

In June 2017, rock climber Alex Honnold free-soloed Yosemite’s El Capitan. He climbed all the way up in less than three hours. He had no ropes to protect him from falling to his death. It was his highest free solo. And he let a film crew document the climb. The film is called “Free Solo.”
