El Kapitan is a granite monolithic formation in Yosemite National Park, California, USA. The monolith, about 900 meters high, is considered one of the biggest challenges on the planet for any climber, due to its vertical slope. This agonizing documentary chronicles, moment by moment, the unthinkable feat of Alex Honnold, who climbed to the top of El Kapitan, without the help of ropes or protective equipment, signing one of the greatest feats in the history of climbing. FREE SOLO is an epic, daring and extremely dangerous route with the sole purpose of conquering the top. He was ready to risk everything: his relationship, his career, even his life. All that he could lose with a single wrong move, hid in the power of his grip to conquer his dream. Get ready for the most exciting documentary that will take you with bated breath on the path of conquering and achieving the most dangerous goal.
