Free Solo Cast

Alex’s climb has been dubbed “One of the greatest athletic feats of any kind, ever” by The New York Times.

But without the cast and crew around him, Free Solo wouldn’t have been possible.

Alex’s girlfriend, Sanni McCandless has a big role in the documentary as you see the effect Alex’s passion has on those closest to him.

American climber Jimmy Chin directed the documentary with his wife and filmmaker Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi.

If you thought watching Alex Honnold cling onto the side of a rock for two hours was bad enough, these guys had to watch him scale El Capitan without a rope in sight first hand!
